FAQ on Art

What is 'paper collage'?

A. Paper collage is a term I use to describe my mistake process. I work in pen, so when I make a mistake I can’t erase it. If I can't live with the mistake, to ‘fix’ it, I trace over my error with tracing paper, then I transfer the shape of the area I've traced onto a fresh piece of paper. I then re-draw the image or design I want to capture on the fresh sheet of paper, cut it out, and glue it on top of the existing drawing. This process gives a layered look to many of my originals. I use this process as a way to salvage my work, otherwise I’d have to throw away days, weeks, and sometimes even months worth of effort. Please see my Artist Statement for a photo of this process.

A lot of your older pictures say: NFS. What does that mean?

A. It means "Not For Sale".

Is your artwork computer generated?

A. No, all of my artwork is drawn freehand.

What is your medium?

A. I work predominantly in pen & ink, coloured pencils, watercolour pencils, and graphite. I have dabbled with charcoal, stick charcoal, chalk pastels, markers, watercolour paints and acrylic paints.

Do you paint?

A. Rarely. Most of my art pieces are drawings.

How did you learn to draw?

A. I've always had a good eye for detail and have been able to draw objects realistically quite easily from a young age. My parents nurtured this talent by placing me into many different art classes, art camps, and hiring private art tutors. I have also attended a few different art schools throughout my youth and since turning my art into a career.

How long does it take you to do a picture?

A. It depends on the size. It can take me days (if small) to several months.

What do you love most about art?

A. I love a fresh piece of paper, I love the ink stroke of a pen. I love colour. I love chipping away at my designs for days and weeks on end watching them take shape.

B. It's a form of therapy for me. Art calms me. It makes me practice patience.

B. Connecting with the public. I enjoy the conversations I have and learning about how my art has impacted others. I would create art whether it sold or not but it's the people I meet whom express gratitude for my art and advocacy that keeps pushing me forward with this career path.
