If an artist/art student, my primary medium or mixed media is:
My name is Janelle Dimmett, and I am a spunky and extremely creative Illustrator. I currently reside in the St. Louis, Missouri area, and I'm from a small town named Villa Ridge. I’m an artist who specializes in Surface Design, Pattern Design, Technical Art, and Whimsical Illustration. I recently earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2013. Along with my Illustration degree, I also have a strong background in Graphic Arts and Visual Design. I spent three years (2008-2011) studying graphic design prior to my acceptance to the Kansas City Art Institute's Illustration program.
I generally work in a traditional manner, and I ultimately consider myself a "marker artist." However, I would not necessarily restrict myself to that medium. My tools are markers, pens, and typically Photoshop for editing.
I prefer to not restrict myself to one specific set of interests. Instead I prefer to keep an open mind about my subject matter. I love working with animal concepts, pattern, botanical imagery, quirky ideas, spot illustration, and just about anything. The majority of my childhood was spent in the rural lands of Missouri, so to say that nature was a big inspiration for me is an understatement. It is in fact a HUGE inspiration.
That's just about it for now. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and feel free to browse my gallery of artworks.
If you're an artist/art student, don't forget to add a brief artist's statement and photos of three of your art works to either your "comment wall" or "text box." This is your basic St. Louis Art Directory information. Later you may add images, videos, post a blog, and much more.
