My views on the creative process
“How do you select what to wear for your day? A little dash of this and that and you have now created a color palette that you wear. Others can see images in the clouds or in the beads of oil in a puddle after the rain. However you view your world, everyone is effected by the creativity around them.
I believe that by allowing my own creative process to unfold organically is the foundation of how I have developed my art work up until today. I react emotionally to my visual surroundings in my minds eye first using my intuition and my souls spirit for guidance. Detailed sketches and photographs help me get familiar with my subject. I am drawn to the abstract designs, high contrasts and the color recipes in nature. Once back in my studio, I respond to the spontaneous splash of translucent washes of watercolors or big fresh juicy layers of oils and color until I find a design that emotionally pleases me. Some of my work stays in its original state of watercolor, while others are worked into rich layers of oil to ink, collaged handmade papers, and a variety of mixed mediums add volume and texture until it feels complete in how I envisioned it in my mind’s eye. My goal as an artist is to evoke a feeling that touches the heart and soul of the viewer that it transcends them into another dimension of inner thought and healing” Lisa Fazio
