Artist Interview: Ramona Freeman
What are your earliest memories related to art?
In those quite times (mom always had pencil and paper in her purse) with materials provided and a glance of encouragement the fun would began.
How and when did you start becoming an artist yourself?
Becoming an artist is a constant growing experience. Creative thinking, problem solving and talent led me to art.
What was the evolution like toward finding your current voice and visual vocabulary?
With every experience you have, your Self changes, and with every piece of art you make, your style changes. My current attention is on multiple perspectives, diversity and the human experience.
What is your process like?
Inspiration, preparation, creation, reflection…repeat!
Is there anything from your artist statement that you wish to expound on, that you normally don’t have the chance to discuss?
In a black and white world I prefer to see shades of gray. My wish is that others will enjoy, associate, analyze or ponder the art work.
What do you try to control in your surfaces, and what do you leave to chance?
I try to “control” the idea by the use of materials and process, but I leave to “chance” the completed result.
Where do you see your work going from here?
My plan is to continually develop my art work for commercial use and/or for self-expression. The work itself is my primary delight.
