Nicole Walters, California Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement Art has always been a large part of my life. I was never exposed to art or other artists through my parents, but have always felt an unmistakable pull towards the arts. Lines, colors, and shapes have forever fascinated me.
Though the only art class I’ve taken was a semester of Art I in high school, I’ve learned a lot through the public library and the internet. My work style may be a bit unconventional. Treating used cardboard and bed sheets for canvas or using fabric puff paint I think lends my work an interesting quality.
I don’t think I have a motivation to paint, but more a compulsion. Driving to work a line or color will jump out at me or sometimes geometric shapes and designs just pop into my head. I’ve dabbled in all different kinds of art. From Calligraphy to Pyrography, I just can’t seem to get enough.
