If you follow my blog at all you know I love the fact that SteamPunk is back. Yes I said back. It is not a new art form, however, the new ways that SteamPunk is being assembled is. Add Dragons to this and I am pretty much a happy girl. I have been collecting Dragons for 30 years. So when I came across this artist how could I not promote her on my blog. I am talking about the very talented Christy from cforiginals. Christy has a seriously funny sense of humor and I know she is the clown of any gathering. This delightful personality comes through in her art. SteamPunk animals with whimsical features. Here is what Christy has to say.
"I have considered myself an artist for as long as I can remember. (I think I doodled in the walls of the womb.) My earliest art class was when I was four - in oils! What a mess! I had a gift from an early age and was lucky to be encouraged in it." Christy goes on to say that she took art classes through high school but then life took over with marriage, family, and making a living. Finally she decided that if she wanted to be an artist then she better get at it. I am so glad she did. Polymer has become her canvas now. She says about SteamPunk,
"SteamPunk is a wonderful concept a futuristic -nostalgic -fantasy thing. Like being in the Victorian era, looking at the future, with the technology of the day." Looking for the right component is part of the fun in creating. Christy even involves her daughter and her friends, getting them to dismantle their old watches for art.
