About promiseArt

Artist Statement:

For me art has multiple purposes. One is to communicate how I see the world around me. I enjoy experimenting with color and form to create enhanced images of objects and moments that often go unnoticed. Most of all I have a passion for color. I enjoy finding beauty in unusual things and places. I also use art as a means of personal therapy. Often pieces are expressions of my thoughts, emotions, and opinions on the world around me. http://www.bypromiseart.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=2&action=edit&message=1This includes humor. I have learned that art does not have to be serious to be appreciated. Humor is an emotion that often gets overlooked, but I think it is an important expression of who a person is. I try to show my personality through my pieces and give each work its own personality as well. Overall I hope that those who see my art can identify with it and find a little bit of themselves in each piece.
