The image that is currently in the forefront of my mind

The image currently in my mind is this wonderful image by Bob Weil. I’m looking into some  interesting courses for diving further into conceptual art on mobile devices. Although I have created images for six years now, there is always more to learn, and the mobile art community is unique when it comes to sharing.

The image that changed my life

This image was the first iPhone photo I took, six years ago, that opened my eyes to a totally different way of creating images, using my mobile camera.  This image opened so many new doors and opportunities for me. It changed my creative direction in life.

Artwork that has influenced my art

From the beginning, Susan Tuttles’ wonderful art has been a great inspiration for me. ’The glistening veil between soul and body’ by Susan Tuttle.

The image that is the most underrated

The playfulness and possibilities in iPhone Art, I think is endless. ’Today’ by Karen Divine is an amazing example.

The talented artist, Sarah Jarrett, was one of the first mobile artists that I noticed years ago on IPA, and I thought ’wow! Is this really iPhone Art’?

The image I would most like to give as a gift

I would choose an image from Jill Lian, ’Found Feathers’, to remind myself and the receiver of this gift, the magic of everyday. The little things in life that we get to see when we take the time to look closely.

It reminds me of the poem by William Blake:

’To see a world in a grain of sand,

And heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

and eternity in an hour’
