Why Do I Do It?

I've been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil. Practicing over and over again almost obsessively until I could get it "right". My inspiration comes from nature and mystery and all the little crevices behind trees and in rock crags that you can't see into. It's the awe of space and darkness and things unknown. I shut my eyes and strange images flash that I have to do something about either by drawing, painting, sculpting, weaving, or even by making it into wearable art jewelry. Jewelry can be lovely and delightful, whimsical and silly, or even moody and melancholy. One piece of jewelry can transform an outfit. It can speak for the wearer. Also, the really cool thing is, one size fits all!
Taking basic elements and restructuring them in a way that reflects mood and makes statements is almost magical. I feel that is what I do when I cut and shape metal or when I personify everyday objects in drawings.
The topics of the art I make (celestial images, faces, nature) are subjects I enjoy studying. The edge that I give them reflects my own taste that leans toward fantasy as well as punk and rock in popular culture with a hint of silliness.
It's ongoing and never seems to stop. I'm an avid people-watcher, lover of a good sale, love laughing, a I have a driving passion for art.
Please follow me! I'm always creating something new.
You can follow my current projects on Facebook (www.facebook.com/MetalChocolate).
