Symoni Owens Designs presents Symoni's wide array of work, creating with numerous forms of media. Please enjoy.
Inspired by Qinni, a Chinese artist who unfortunately lost her battle with Cancer. Her light-hearted and surrealistic art was quite the influence on my work growing up.
I was heavily inspired by the idea of creating a piece that would reflect mother earth, and it's a galactic counterpart, but by the idea of duality in use of media, which in this case was Copic markers and Prismacolor.
I wanted to play around with the idea of using a cool monochromatic color palette to represent something hot, such as fire. By combining the eerie green with butterfly lighting, I feel I captured the spooky atmosphere I was going for.
Originally a commission piece, this work really pushed me to innovate in terms of background design and texturing. Such a wonderful learning experience.
When your mind creates its own universe, the only reasonable place for it to live is in its own galaxy.
