Day 122: Lavinia Morris
Over the years, I've worked in a myriad of media such as digital and as atraditional printmaker. I've found a deep love in painting and drawing and tend towardstraditional media as I prefer the tactile, sensory appeal. Wood speaks to me on a visceral level and I'mtruly happy using it as a painting surface and allowing the wood grain to give it's owngrace tothe work. Itis form init's natural simplicity and I find more and more I want to letit shine. My art could best be described as a mix of fantasy, nostalgia, and deep, personal experiences. Ido preferportraits, as you get close to the character as you would a friend sharing secrets.For me, form and aesthetictends to be as important astheme. I’ve been influenced alot by stories and fairy tales and poster lithographs, especially the 1900’s illustrationand woodblock eras from Western and Easternprinting. Game art such as Square-Enixand graphicartists and film artists such as Miyazaki.
