The Artistic Mayhem of Susan Pfeiffer,
Throughout my life I have attempted to take the ideas and concepts in my head and reproduce them in as many forms as I can. Whether it be through animation, life drawing or character designs, illustrations, plush design, beading and jewelry making. I have always felt the need to create and be creative.
My approach as a texture artist is to design using traditional methods, take that design and turn it into a pattern and then to produce a plush representation of that original design. As a line is the start of every design, it is carried thru into the 3D realization. Every creature sports its lines on the outside, not hidden and turned under.
I love to play with colour, so the lines contrast the body and allow for greater combinations of colours. My beadwork follows the same path, pulling inspiration from the cabochons I work with; stones, fossils, glass & lampwork. Each piece I bead is OOAK and hand-stitched with care.
My main aim is to instill a sense of playfulness and whimsey in my finished works that will appeal to all, both young and old.
