This is a paper burning. Much like wood burning but with paper. Has a sepia color since that is what paper burns as. I love fantasy and surrealism, so I wanted to bring that into my nature drawings. So you won't find these out in nature, but still you can see how they would fit in our world. I just love how my little caterpillar turned out, so fuzzy!
Pyrography is a delicate and long process, but so worth it!

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.
