My Art Journey

by Kaylee Gagne
Artist Statement

My work explores and illustrates the personal growth and development of being an artist. Saving and documenting my art works in sketchbooks and portfolios is a large part of my artistic process by providing a timeline and narrative of both creative and personal growth. Self-expression and storytelling have, and continue to be, a constant underlying theme in my artwork.

 

For as long as I can remember, I have been creating self-portraits and visual narratives with personal comic strips to help illustrate and tell my story. Using this as inspiration, I have created a body of work that explores my journey of becoming an artist.

 

Markers, colored pencils, and acrylic paint markers are media I am very familiar with and have been using since the very beginning of my art making. They allow me to capture the bright colors that reflect the characterized version of the world I perceive and explore in my work.
