What is an artist's style and how does an artist determine a style? These are timeless questions that I will attempt to respond to, along with the help of a few experts, in this month's blog entries.
Steven Heller and Marshall Arisman, authors of “Inside the Business of Illustration”
define Individual Style as “a by-product of our limitations, interests, and abilities. Everyone has a style that is an outgrowth of continuous work. The connections between your drawing, painting, and image making get stronger with time. That recognizable link in your work is your style.”
Picasso said that “style is what you call what other people do.”
The practice of making art and images continues to connect me with my visual language that is defined as style. Though I have seen changes in subject in my work, I am also seeing an underlying feeling that comes through as "me".
