I lived for many years thinking that I would never be a good artist, that art just isn’t my thing. To my own surprise I have discovered that I was actually an artist my whole life. Since I was very little I was knitting and crocheting for example. I discovered that I also have a natural talent for pottery and eventually I decided to try myself in fine art again. Luckily for my my husband is an artist and he guided me along the labyrinth of art techniques and art supplies. I soon discovered that the main reason I thought I was bad in art is because I didn’t find what type of art I’m good at. I never tried inking for example, I never worked with acrylic paint and watercolor pain I used was the one no respectable artist would ever even consider an art supply. With this new knowledge I threw myself into the world of art and never ending imagination. I found three themes I like working with the most and was drawing and painting them ever since.
We humans are creatures of emotions and this too can be seen in my work. I love a challenge and it can often be challenging to portray emotions and relationships through abstract painting. Even more challenging is to portray a very complex series of emotions all in one small piece. This is something I love doing however, I love pushing my own imagination to the limits and paint something seemingly impossible to show in one image. This is what draws me to abstract, you can do with it so much.
Emotions and interpersonal relationships is only one of the themes I like exploring however, nature is another great topic for artwork. I often see beautiful realistic paintings of nature, but I haven’t seen as many abstract paintings on this topic, I felt it wasn’t fair to the wonderful and mysterious world we live in so I started working on this topic as well.
The last but not least is my love for human body. I have studied human anatomy in details in college since I was studying to be a doctor and the complexity of how we work fascinated me. Naturally when I decided to trade medical field for art I started drawing body organs as well as human form. Besides, I can say that I didn’t waste all these years studying medicine, I use it in my work now. Which kind of makes me feel better about the lost time.
