Kristie Mercer, Palos Hills Member Since August 2011 Artist Statement "Everything that has been created in life, comes from all thing's Inspired"
A great art teacher of mine, when I was in high school had taught me the greatest lesson of all. I remember sitting in her class at my desk, with my paper blank, refusing to do the assignment.She came over to my desk asking what's the problem? I answered,"Do I have to create a table, what's the point, and nothing comes to mind it's blank, can't I create something else?" She responded with the words,"Art is not about the subject itself, but a job well done, is if the viewer felt all the emotion's the artist was feeling when they created it, and that is what a true fine artist is all about". Her words made me realize I have been expressing myself, and how I feel into visual forms all along since, early childhood... This is what has inspired me to become the artist that I am today.
