" As a child, my first canvases were the walls of my bedroom and it’s been a strange, fantastic ride ever since. I’m a 21-year-old digital illustrator from San Francisco with a passion for enigmatic portraiture. I began taking painting more seriously when I discovered Photoshop around age 13. A lot has changed since then, but I still have that childlike excitement every time I see and create art. I eventually moved to Georgia to study at the Savannah College of Art and Design, and am currently working on my BFA in Illustration.
I have a love for nature, biology, and portraiture which are recurring themes throughout my work. Ethereal and atmospheric moods have always appealed to me because the sense of mystery they evoke, so I tend create soft pieces with a combination of graphic and realistic elements.
My inspiration comes from organic natural elements, mythology and history, movement and texture, lyrics and melodies, expressions, color variations, pretty much anything which makes me want to grab my tablet and paint!" AD
She creates visually captivating pieces of art. Her use of Photoshop includes blend modes and brush work. Her composites are just stunning.
“I have worked with, and been interested in, both art and photography since a young age. Over the years it has become increasingly obvious that I should focus on creating photographic art for myself. I have explored and developed various artistic ways to express myself during this time, and my experimental approach to photography has resulted in widely varying themes. I’m 20 years old and completely self-taught in terms of both photographic and digital manipulation techniques. After being contacted by a large and well-respected gallery in Copenhagen, I have now undertaken my first solo exhibition. My career as a fine art photographer has therefore only just begun.” – Marie Wengler
