It's All About The Process
A big part of what I enjoy about being an artist is getting immersed in the process of creating. One thing artist Judy Chicago taught me was that the process of creating is just as important as the finished product. According to Picasso, Good artists copy but Great artists steal. For me that means do lots of looking and learning from what artists have already done before. (Visual Research) Figure out how they did it and then make it better by using your own unique perspective. (Experiments + Practice = Process)Let other artists inspire you to create new work,
Pinterest has made collecting and housing visual research easy. I create boards for different topics. Click on the image below to view different aspects of my visual research and artistic processes.
