A Little Bit About Me
I would categorize my art as surrealism. I gain a lot of inspiration for my work from nature. I get very excited over seeing beautiful landscapes and greenery. Also, I absolutely thrive when I am in a greenhouse. Want to see and excited Frankii? Take me to a greenhouse. I love all plants and animals and that is why most of my work revolves around them. Something you see very commonly in my work is mushrooms and it seems to be what my work is known for now. I have always drawn mushrooms even as a child. I have finger paintings that I made as a child of mushrooms. If you thumb through some of my earliest sketchbooks from elementary and middle school there are mushrooms in them. I have always been drawn to depicting them in my work and they still appear in the majority of things that I create today. Do they have any sort of meaning? No, I am just deeply drawn to them for some reason and they have just become a huge part of my body of work.
Art to me is a very deep and personal experience. When you are viewing a piece of art, you are viewing something that was created in someones mind and they attempted to make that vision external for the world to see. Of course, a vision from our mind will most likely never be perfectly physically replicated depending on a number of things such as skill level, mediums that we choose to create with and so on. Art really is just our own interpretation of a product of other people's visions and that is so beautiful to me. It’s another form of communication. Art is a language that we all speak to some extent. We all see art differently because well, we are all different, and my favorite thing about being an artist is hearing how other people see and feel when experiencing my work.
I am not sure where this whole art thing will take me, but I am very grateful that you are here experiencing it with me!
