Amaranta Ibarra Sandys

Mixed Media

My work is self narrative of  my recent travels , where I collected a series of maps, brochures, and postcards.

Whimsical Map Art

amaranta_profileCreative 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.
