Fire makes art! Or heat. I was trying out some new texture and plants to do and I came up with this, which was quite fun to do. I like putting some form of creature in my art and I thought a tiny bird would be cute among the shrooms. I like that you have to think about size a moment. Are the mushrooms huge or is the bird just very tiny? Hopefully you can figure that out for yourself. :)
Well, I’m Jessica Stepp. I'm a philosopher by degree, but artist and poet by heart. I'm passionate about nature, which influences my art greatly, even if it is mostly surreal and fantasy. I grew up in the Midwest and love what it has to offer in way of natural beauty. Hiking and wandering the land is a way that I get inspired to draw. I also let my mind wander and whatever it creates I put to paper. I'm a quiet person and very thoughtful so I think about what I do in art and how others take it. I want the viewer to enjoy it as much as I do in creating it. Being quiet and shy is a hardship for an artist though. It makes for putting your art out there rough. I have a wonderful family who pushed me to get my art out and to not be afraid of what others say.
