Meet the Maker 2

Getting caught up on the meet the maker daily posts.

Detail or close up: A lot of my work is best viewed close up, rather than from a distance. My subject matter for my drawings is more personal, and I think getting in close allows the viewer to reflect on their own experiences in relation to the work. Using a digital medium means that up close you can often see digital aspects of the work like a stair stepped line, pixellation or a slight blur to the image. I don’t try to hide these details as I feel it’s part of the medium.

My photography is about the details, and finding a composition within a larger image. The most exciting time for me is when I open an image and immediately see several possibilities. It also leads me to look at the nature around me in new ways.

Less glam side: The less glam side of work for me is the framing and packing art for shipping. It never fails, no matter how many times you give your image the once over, there will be a hair or dust or something that appears from nowhere and requires you to do it again! (…and again, and again) I have to wear a mask when using glass or plexiglass cleaner, which is also not very glamourous.

I have never used as much painter’s tape, bubble wrap, cardboard and packing tape as I have when packing art for shipping. Painter’s tape and cardboard and bubble wrap to protect the front of the frame. Lots more bubble wrap and cardboard corners for the rest, and the right sized box is key to prevent the work from moving around during shipping, to get where its going in one piece. As a rule of thumb, quadruple whatever amount of materials you think it will take. 😀

Work fashion choices… no glasses or glasses to compliment the mask?
Framing supplies! (the exclamation point accentuates the excitement evident in this photo)
Glass – both friend and enemy
Ready to go!
