My work challenges notions of propriety in career and lifestyle choices, of doing what is expected. These struggles escape my mind in the form of bizarre characters and compositions. Unresolved issues of parental career guidance are the burning force that drives my artistic direction. I knew at the age of 5 that I wanted to be an artist. My parents facilitated supplies and lessons, but NEVER was it a serious career choice, teaching was the ONLY option. Now that I have done my time as a teacher, making art is my primary career goal.
The process of making art fuels my imagination. Anything that I encounter on a daily basis is fair game for ideas, textures, colors, and materials. I layer media in an intuitive fashion using acrylic and magazines on thrift store canvases.
Studio Sarcelle is my teal green studio in Houston, Texas.
