I was listening to the soundtrack of Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows and I was in a bit of a mood. Not mad or sad, but just not right with how I was feeling. So I began to draw this. And I started with the background, working backwards basically. So in a way it shows the emotional state I was in. I actually like the look to it, despite it being a bit different to what I normally do.
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.
