Artist in the Digital Age

Deep breath. Now, JUMP!

And I free fall...straight into the deep end.

I’m taking the plunge into the deep end of the world wide web. Turning a camera on myself. Youtube and Patreon, here I come!

What a strange and interesting time we live in! News of the world is readily available at our fingertips. You can learn about anything, and everything. Art, news, entertainment, opinion and media is all here, a click away. For better or worse. Artists can share not just their completed pieces, but their thoughts, lives, creativity and creative processes directly with people who want to see it, and get paid for it! That is something truly unique about being an artist in a the digital age.

I’m a multimedia artist, and I work with all the kinds of media. My work can be challenging, silly, intense, beautiful, dark, and whimsical. While most of my art is painting in acrylics and watercolors, I also create performance art, sew, sculpt, collage, write, and work in experimental photography, Often times combining several at once. I’ve come to consider social media and the internet an art form, as well.

I’ve been working on videos and vlogs lately...with a fair amount of nervous awkwardness. I’ve pushed myself past my own self consciousness with wondering what Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, or Salvador Dali could have done with such an outlet as the internet.
