I've been told this looks like the Côte d'Azur in the south of France. Although that was not my intent, it does have similarities if you look at an arial view of the coastline. It was inspired by an artist I met in Paris. Was it a coincidence? Je ne sais pas.
My name is Stacie Schimke. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. Creating is my passion and my purpose. I am inspired by design: graphic, architectural, object, interior, and the combinaton of color and texture. The creative process makes me feel alive. I am self-taught and adhere to the notion that less is more. I never know how a piece will turn out. Sometimes I choose a word or a poem and interpret the meaning onto a canvas. I paint until the piece resembles the feeling I get from reading the poem or the word. I use many tools when I paint; a palette knife, a brush, a scraper, a roller, my hands. I live and work in Phoenix, and Flagstaff, Arizona, with my brilliant border collie, Finnbar, and the love of my life, Tom.
