My work with the model as muse gives us a window to the individual soul. I intend to inspire the viewer to observe the subject with a level of pathos; to confront the truth within themselves as to what they believe to be beautiful.

I make use of washes to form an abundance of effects. I am fascinated by the fluidity and ungoverned nature of watercolor. I enjoy watching the water and the color dancing on paper.

Now that I’m an artist activist with On Women Bound as my life’s work, I’ve come to believe that as artists it’s our responsibility to use our talent to change the world for the better.

My use of water is a metaphor for what I see as the refreshing fluidity of life that is embodied in the effervescent faces of the children that live in my neighborhood.

Featured Artist Lioba Brückner

I still can’t believe that I can paint these crazy, colorful, romantic and almost kitschy paintings of fantasy creatures, even fairies and angels, and that there are people out there who love them and support my art.

Featured Artist Stacy Hatley Carter
