Artist Statement:I am Milly Gumley and I’m the artist of “The Tail of the Guppy”. A Lot of my artwork is based around feelings I experience, and Tales I listen too. In this case, the “Tail of The Guppy” is based on an idea I got from listening to a tale about a ghost ship. In all my art I enjoy putting a sense of oddness about it. I love replacing humans with animals to show a sense of playfulness or humor. The reason I make art is to make people use their imaginations to really put themselves in the role of the story. I love to make people think. My favorite mediums are canvas and acrylic paint. I usually start by layering piece by piece, starting with the background, then the subject and adding shading and details as I go.
