animation & digital art
This body of work features original 2D animations, stop motion and puppetry that I have created. (Credit to Ivette Spradlin for the A' la Creme mouse video)
I am exploring the field of animation, incorporating movement and sound into my fine art.
I have used Stop motion techniques to make original sculpted creatures fly above hundreds of my sculpted figures, against oil painted backgrounds, utilized my passion for gesture drawing in hand drawn and tradigital animations, created sleek worlds of creatures moving through After Effects Animations, and translated my painting techniques into digital works in Photoshop.
The field of animation is the culmination of the art I love: striking color, intriguing creatures and stories, integrated with the beauty of movement.
I've found my calling.
