I am an artist from Ottawa, Canada. My art is described as abstract impressionist. Using high quality acrylic paints, I paint big florals, seascapes and food. My art has been displayed in several shows, juried and solo.
I love the artistic energy and feel uplifted when I visit national art galleries and smaller independent venues. Original art raises the vibration in a home. Original art, whether painted by a master or a seven year-old child, completes the space we live in.
Up until 2009, I had never painted anything. I signed up for art lessons with one of Ottawa's favourite artists. I was hooked. It is the most wonderful feeling to hold a paint brush filled with colour and apply one's energy onto a large canvas.
I believe that everyone has an inner artist dwelling inside of their soul. In our fast-paced, technological world, wouldn't it be amazing to pick up a paint brush rather than a cell phone? Whatever the art form, I guarantee it will make a difference in your life. Try it sometime.
