“Perfectly ordered disorder designed with a helter-skelter magnificence.” - Emily CarrI am inspired by nature, mortality, ancestral heritage, astrology and celestial bodies, and a slew of other things and instances too vast to mention. I am also entranced by moments, memories, words, maps, photographs, and what some may call trivial thoughts. Inspiration can come from something as vast as the mountains or as tiny as a speck of sand. Though my paintings, drawings and mixed media creations vary in style, they are each inspired by a particular moment, feeling or observation. Each artwork is a celebration, whether that happens to be melancholy or joyous. In my abstracts I am exploring the relationship between nature and mortality, the literal and figurative, and synesthetic impressions.The whimsical and uplifting Higher Intuitions Oracle Deck was illustrated by me and published by Schiffer Publishing. I am semi-obsessed with the Victorian and Edwardian eras and I tend to be inspired strongly by them in my scent blending and a lot of my art. I love making art, taking photos, going to cemeteries & studying gravestone symbols, & reading about or looking at things from the Victorian & Edwardian eras. I never get tired of Antiques Roadshow.Making soap, candles, and other home fragrances is another passion of mine, but perfume blending is my absolute favorite of those.I have favorites of my own blends and frequently wear Oh My Darlin' perfume oil."My illustrious lordship, I'll show you what a woman can do." ~ Artemisia Gentileschiwww.themysticthicket.comwww.hazelfernscents.comMore abstract and whimsical art, digital collage, photography, candles, soaps, perfume, jewelry, and other things available at www.johnagibsonbowman.com
