About Billy Clifton- Strawn ART

Billy Clifton-Strawn 


I have always struggled with drawing and painting.   My hand is unsteady and unsure in those medium.  Being a creative, frustration at my inability to draw and paint to create visual art has always been present.  It was as if there was a vast reservoir of ideas and images being held back by a formidable dam.  

At the age of 64 THE DAM HAS BE EN BREACHED!   A reservoir of creativity has finally broken through and is flooding out of my mind.  My work is currently prolific, I just can not produce work fast enough to keep up with the flow of ideas for visual images.   

What broke the dam?   Modern tools.  I took to them like a duck to water.   They gave me the ability to produce visual art images using my own original photographs to produce photograph collages and paintings.  I was also able to create digital images from scratch. 

It turns out that my canvas is an iPad.

 A iPhone camera along with photo editing software are my paints and brushes.     

I find inspiration, innovation and encouragement in my works.
