What led you to start creating your art/craft?
Little Laidly Worm (Wyrm, Wurm, Wyvern..)
I would have to say that the conception of any new creature is the most fun, deciding how it will look, seeing it come about, and developing its story and nature. I love to tell stories with my work, and in crafting many little creatures, scenes, and designs, I'm given the opportunity to develop new stories every day.
If you had to choose a fruit OR a vegetable, to describe your art/craft, what would you choose, and why?
I would definitely choose peppers! Hands down, as they're spicy, bright, and come in so many varities! Actually... that gives me ideas for new dragons...!
If you had to choose one other medium in which to display your “creativity”, what would that be, and why?
Well, I do use a lot on my own, but if I were to add a new one to my repertoire, I think I would choose cooking (a strange 'medium' I know), which I feel is a very fine art form, which as yet still eludes me. To learn to craft elaborate sugar sculptures and compose dishes and items that delight the palate would be a great joy to me. The art of scent and taste, be it perfume or confectionery is a realm I definitely wish to explore in the future.
What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?
There is always room for brightness, fantasy, and joy in the world, and not all things with too many teeth are as scary as they look.
What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?
Never throw away your old work, and don't undersell yourself. Your old work will show you how far you've come, don't look down on it, embrace it as a part of what you've learned. If it didn't work the first time, fix it and try again. And remember that your time and work are valuable, don't forget that.
Thanks, Pearl, for sharing your whimsical fantasy creations with everyone, and for giving us a bit of an "insight" as to what motivates you as an artist. It has been a pleasure to have you on DZFANTASY as a featured artist.
