Patricia Feaster -Kimmerle, San Antonio, TX Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement Painting has captured my heart. It has allowed me to express my emotions and desires in an abstract way. The materials I use primarily are acrylic, watercolor, and photography. The works I produce are fresh, colorful, with a modern spin. I am encouraged and inspired by other artists to push past limits and fine tune my skill. Things that inspire me are the slice of life, pop culture, fashion, and beauty. Artist that have influenced me are Monet, Andy Warhol, and Frida just to name a few. It is very fulfilling to see someone take in a piece that I have created and reflect on it. The creative need to explore and capturing life’s little moments will forever lure me to keep a brush and camera in hand.
The interest in photography sparked up after my son was born. I really enjoyed taking photos of him and it expanded from there. There is something about capturing life's little moments that keeps a camera in my hands.
