Just a quick update about my artwork,
I need to get my ass into gear and get my list of things to do- cut down; basically Im getting less and less motivated with deviant art, oh it has served me so well for all the years ive been on here! 6 years now?
I am in the process of getting my website sorted out and still tweaking my art book that will be available soon I hope-
Once I get my website sorted ill probably be less involved with deviant art, I just find it hard to put the time in
And I really need a professional website!
Thanks for all the support even though Im hardly on here anymore!
Tegan Coddington was born in 1986 in Perth Western Australia growing up in quiet suburbs close to the city with her parents and younger sister.
Since a child Tegan was always drawing and always had a vivid imagination with a spice for the magical and the strange. Her favorite childhood movies were the last unicorn, the yellow submarine, Legend, willow, and fantasia, which other children at the same age wouldnt much enjoy or relate to.
Tegan went to Balcatta senior high school and specialized in Special art until year 11. Although she always did well in art yet found that art school didnt teach her much with her own art yet it did give her exposure to different art mediums like oil and acrylic paint, clay, wire, ink, charcoals, digital graphics, wood and metal.
Tegan favorite medium to create is still watercolor pencils, though she does enjoy painting and plans to get more involved with paint in the future.
In early teens Tegan took an interest in the gothic and alternative culture and fashion, along with her own appearance her art took the darker interest, her earlier images were always full of cuts, guts and blood, her recent works are much more toned down but still keep some of the macabre themes. Horror movies, metal or hardcore music inspired her art as well as the darker fashions.
Tegan left high school at completion of year 11. She hated school but kept on drawing. Her images of creepy dark lands with beautiful twisted women bearing marks of tattoos, piercing, tight laced rubber or lace reflect Tegan sometimes in appearance unconsciously and her tastes in her own view of beauty. Other than the fashion of high gloss snap your ankle heels, overzealous tattoo ink and tight lace corsets her other creative influences are the artists Camille rose Garcia, Mark Ryden, Michael Hussar, Trevor Brown, H R Giger, Laura Satana, Tyson McAdoo, Faffinette, Kukuland, Uncle Allen to mention a few.
From joining an online gallery called Deviant art in 2004 her artwork got the exposure she needed to make her art her Job. Due to the nature of her artwork it appealed to the alternative youth market of today which took her artwork all over Perth to rock band posters, alternative clothing shops, t-shirt designs and tattoo designs. Shortly her artwork followed to all over the world thanks to the great success of the arts popularity. She quickly started making a business with her art selling it to many clothing companies in the states and overseas, designing unique tattoo images, clothing and boutique logos to even corsets.
Her artwork is very popular in the tattoo field and she gets emailed regularly by youth who have her designs permanently etched into their flesh usually covering substantial parts of their bodies.
Tegan will always enjoy the twisted or darker side of life yet she is always growing and always developing within herself and in extension her art. Her artwork will always reflect what she enjoys and what she believes is uniquely beautiful in her own view.
