GET TO KNOW ME AND MY MESSY, ABSTRACT, HEARTFELT ART!
Mysti is a self -taught artist who has been painting and seriously pursuing her love of art since 1998.
Using mostly acrylics, abstract, drippy messy paint, texture and movement in color is her style.
I have always been drawn to color and affected by the colors around me. I can remember lying on my bed when I was young, coloring on notebook paper, fading one color into the next until every line was filled. The colors that were next to each other had to blend just right before I was satisfied.
Years later, when I was a teenager, I wanted to paint on the walls in my bedroom. Still lacking confidence, I wasn't sure what to paint. Part of me wanted to throw messy paint colors everywhere, yet part of me still lived in a conservative box - trying to find my own way, afraid it might not look right and that would somehow turn into a glaring, unchangeable mistake.
As a compromise I suppose, my Dad, being detailed and engineer minded, taped off stripes that we painted in different shades of navy and tan. It was conservative, yet a chance to paint on my bedroom walls. It was just the kick in the pants I needed and
I've been painting on walls ever since. "
My art is heartfelt and meaningful.
I am inspired and influenced by my faith in Christ
and that is often reflected in my paintings
My affinity for hearts has trickled into my art as part of my signature. Every painting has a heart in it as the feature, hidden somewhere in the art, or along the signature.
