Willard Wigan makes art so teeny one needs a microscope to see it! Charlie Chaplin dancing on the end of an eyelash? Yup, that's pretty teeny. The tail, of the elephant made from the fragment of a grain of sand, is a dust particle plucked from the air! Sometimes mere static moves the pieces. Find out what happened to Alice of Wonderland, what he uses as a paintbrush and what he answered when asked if he enjoys what he does! To hear him speak a bit more, about how he works in between heart beats, for example, watch this interview as well. All very amusing and interesting.
I live, draw, design and paint in & out of my pistachio green home studio affectionately known as "the hut" at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado. I see the mountains from my window everyday and they are still as beautiful and as inspiring as the day we met. I have a little garden where I grow collard greens, chard, kale, bell and hot peppers, some other veggies and flowers too. I once lived and traveled around the Australian desert in a yellow VW bus for a year and picked peas, peaches, nectarines and nashi pears for a living.
I love bento boxes, chopsticks and bowls, bonsai trees, teas, tea cups and tea pots. I love all kinds of Festivals (art, film, music, moon, international, fiery foods, cycling, balloon). I LOVE Balloons and Lanterns, Yoga, Hot Springs and Spa Treatments, Sleeping outside in the Summertime, Riding my Bicycle, Dancing and Telemark Skiing. I want to get good at spinning POI!
I am Brazilian, British, Belgian and American. I used to wonder whether my art and paintings could really offer anything of true value to another human being. I no longer wonder. I think birthdays are special and love to celebrate my friends.
