Sandy Hokanson likes birds. She finds inspiration, order and also mystery in the infinite combinations of energy and color our natural world creates.
After many years of painting in a realistic style, she now focuses less on detail and more on the design of each subject — finding meaning in both simple and complex patterns. Her digital illustrations are created by drawing directly into a computer using either a mouse or special pen and pad. Next she creates a unique palette of colors to layer onto the drawings.
Her tools have changed, but the mental processes used to create the art have not. Seeing things in new ways – experimenting with new ideas – that’s what artists do.
