Description

My current findings of illustrations carry out the possible outcomes to be read as different expressive, receptive and articulation language interpretations of individuals ranging from ages 2-6 years old. These simple illustrations range over various types of farm animals, non-farm animals, and random objects, which allows separation from normal farm life. My inspiration came from farm illustrations and objects. I am a senior studying Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology and found a variety of my inspirations for the colored illustrations from the Michigan landscape that Andrews University is surrounded by. My inspiration for the objects came from my experience in my speech practicum, where I was working with clients with expressive, receptive, and articulation disorders. I found that the Michigan landscape provides excellent opportunities for children on their ride to school to expand their imagination and creativity. For example, a farm object starting with the /sh/ sound can be initiated by drawing a sheep. Using these initial simple sounds will help stimulate language. This project creates illustrations that explore the gap between expressive, receptive and articulation disorders, where this abstraction explores simplification and limits of colored pencils.
