My Bio

Hi there, and welcome to my DeviantArt-page!


My name is IT and my goal is to make your everyday better with art! Oil paintings and ink drawings are my speciality, and I play with art on a spectrum between reality and surreality, searching for something I am not completely sure what is yet. And that's the beauty of it!

For a painter the palette is the most important tool. Without it you are useless. One of my painting mentors said to think of painting in musical terms, and I think this is very useful. Your palette is your instrument, and it has to be able to represent all the notes so you can perform your music well. It also needs to have a system so you know where to find your notes on the instrument. This doesn't mean it has to be able to create all the sounds in the world, but a way of representing all the notes. For instance: a guitar doesn't sound like a piano, but you can play the same notes on them. On your palette the notes are your colors and value
