Ready to Hang

I apply my paint in layers, color over color, blending and covering or wiping away to leave the underlying layers exposed. I scrape away or add more paint to the surface for interest and depth, sometimes scraping right into the texture and filling the gaps again with more paint. Sometimes what I think is a mistake ends up being the reason the piece works.

My inspiration comes from artists like Matisse and Rothko and the environmental landscape of our time. Or, it could be a feeling I have at the moment, or a photograph I see. Inspiration is all around me.

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.
