Jolie Guillebeau, Seattle Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement Create something everyday.
I can wax nostalgic for hours, so without my paintings, I’d just be an annoying person who spends too much time and money on toys from eBay.
Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it.
I try to live and paint like this.
I paint from a sense of nostalgia and joy. My focus on playful subject matter intends to reflect my sense of humor and desire to create memories of gratitude and fun. Today, play, joy and fun are often neglected for busyness, work, and worry. I’d like to counter the idea that life must be worrisome and busy to be valid. I work in the still-life tradition and paint carefully and with deliberation in the hope that others will find that sense of joy through my work.
