Ready to Hang
My love of travel and water inspires me to paint abstract landscapes..Heavily textured in areas and slightly rustic, this work of art is glazed with a semi gloss coating and the sides are painted in the same background color.. Painted on 1 and 1/2 inch gallery wrapped canvas, so there is no need to frame. This completely original work will arrive wired and ready to hang!
As a child, I spent hours on end with my sketch pad getting lost in my drawings. My dream was to become a commercial artist. Instead, as a young adult, I became a hairstylist and ultimately owned my own salon for a number of years. I realize now that becoming a hairstylist was a way for me to earn a living, but still keep a connection with the creative process. After choosing to stay home to raise my children, my desire to create was still alive, and upon the completion of my first painting, a mural over my daughter's crib, a passion for painting was born. Over the years, I have experimented and painted on anything from furniture, walls, canvas, columns, wood etc... I even designed and painted a 15 ft diameter dome on a 31 ft ceiling. After that monumental task, I decided to stay with canvas work mostly. At this point in my career, I tend to lean toward abstract and impressionist art. My love of travel is often my inspiration. However, sometimes the combination of texture comes together and I feel as though the painting sort of creates itself. As a self taught artist, I feel very blessed to have my work displayed in various homes, offices, and businesses across the country. I'm so excited to have the opportunity that ARTtwo50 presents to artists and art lovers alike. An artist can actually earn a living, while they're living. Original art is made accessible and affordable to those who want unique items for themselves to enjoy.
