Amaranta Ibarra Sandys
My work is self narrative of my recent travels , where I collected a series of maps, brochures, and postcards.
Whimsical Map Art
Creative Process: First I carefully select the map or region I visited and used it as my background, then I sketch different nature objects based on what I experience, I use velum paper as my second layer for my drawing, then I illustrate it with watercolor pencils or acrylics. As a final touch I stamped, cut and paste a phrase that I invented for each drawing. The original pieces are mounted on a wood panel and varnish to protect it.
How my art fits into Art Under $100′s vision: Some pieces are based on the Maritime life of the Duwamish river along with its culture and people.
