What is Art from the Heart? It is unique art for home and heart!
One day at an art show, a man walked into my Essence of Laurel booth. He was very taken by my work and asked me, “where within you does this come from?” I pointed to my heart and said, “right here.” The man smiled and said, “I can see that.” At that moment, I knew the name for my artwork would be ‘Art from the Heart.’ Many people ask me, when viewing my work, “What is that – is it a photograph? Is it a painting? What medium do you use?”
Digital tools have given me the freedom to create captivating and unique art for home and heart. Here is a description of my medium:
“I digitally combine my photographs, pastels, and drawings, and then blend them together to create a new composition. Then I go into my digital toolbox and create new colors, shapes, lines, curves, details, and perspectives ~ until the piece speaks to me and tells me its name. For me, it is artwork which is bestowed by life and embroidered by imagination.”
The words I hear most often at art shows, when people gaze at my work, are “inspirational” and “moving.” It is then that I know that my unique art for home and heart has touched someone’s spirit and has met its purpose. Laurel
My unique art for home and heart will grace your walls – be inspired today!
It began in 2009 when the shift occured which transformed me into the woman I am today. Death, an unexpected teacher, was my transformative metamorphosis. Never could I have imagined that the death of my husband of 42 years would take me on a journey through loss and grief to a redefined sense of self. The slow and painful healing process unfolded my creativity and, in what I can only describe as a “new normal,” the Essence of Laurel emerged.
Art from the Heart is my playground; a place where I can tap into my innermost creativity as an inspirational writer and artist. The surprise is that it came at a time when I thought that the next chapters in my life would be lonely; without purpose or passion. Instead I have been given the gift of a renewed sense of life, its possibilities and most importantly, an appreciation for living in the present moment.
My first book, Emerging Voices – Living On has a purpose ~ to serve as a journal and healing catalyst for anyone who has experienced a loss. The art and poetry within is a testimony as to what can happen when we acknowledge grief in all its forms. It allows for the discovery of a new perspective which will lead you on a journey of self-discovery and renewal.
Our human experience, whether in a crisis or a life transition, continuously gives us the opportunity to learn and grow. We can choose to stay in a place of sorrow and regret, or embrace these life-altering experiences from which we can discover a new way of being.
My hope is that my inspirational writing and ‘Art from the Heart’ touches something within you. Listen to your music … Find your rhythm … Celebrate this dance called Life!
