BEHIND THE SCENES: HOW I CREATE THE "BLOOM" SERIES

Ever wonder how these "Bloom" pieces are created? Thought I would offer up a sneak peak into my process in creating these 3D artworks...

 
 

IT ALL STARTS WITH A LITTLE VISUAL STIMULATION. I BEGIN BY COLLECTING PIECES OF THE IMAGERY I ENCOUNTER EACH DAY, COMBINING THESE WITH SKETCHES AND DRAWINGS OF ASSORTED VISUAL MEMORIES AND DAYDREAMS. 


 
 

THESE ARE THEN COLLAGED TOGETHER... 


 
 

HAND-CUT INTO HUNDREDS OF FLOWERS...


 
 

AND ASSEMBLED TOGETHER INTO A VISUAL GARDEN OF THOUGHTS AND MEMORIES


 
 

IT'S A BIT OF CHANCE... INTUITION...PLAY...AND MAGIC AS I WITNESS THE PIECE COMING TOGETHER
