Ready to Hang
This is a wood burning on poplar. Since I love to put little creatures in my art I felt that a spider would be fun and cute. Working in wood takes a long time, but the warmth of the piece and texture is worth the time. Plus the added depth from the wood itself is wonderful. I enjoyed making this even when I don't do a lot of art in wood usually. This is not framed, but there is a wire on the back screwed in so it is ready to hang.
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.
