Anne Marie Baugh, Perry, UT Member Since April 2010 Artist Statement As an artist I believe that art is an expression of hope. My art expresses so much of who I am and achieves an emotional impact through color and form. Abstract art is art in motion, and the viewer often appreciates abstract art in a truly emotional way.
Like many artists I have been creating since I was a very young girl. My mother was a single parent and money was tight, but art was never an option. When she wanted to take art classes she would gain permission for me to join her, because she couldn't afford a babysitter and the art class. Due to the fact that I was very shy, it was never a problem to include me. I was a lucky little girl to be able to learn from so many fine artists and instructors. Art was born in me and thrived through constant encouragement. It is my feelings yearning to come out and be expressed on canvas.
