Painting for my Heart to Sing

Hi it's great to meet you! Welcome to Sailor Grey Fine Arts!

I'm Sabrina Markon and I love art! - both enjoying the marvelous creativity and emotion I see come from the minds of others, as well as creating my own and studying Art History! I particularly love painting. I find the tactile and mindful sensation of feeling color flowing from a brush an extension of my own energy and life.

Recently, I discovered the art of hand painting wine glasses (and other glassware). I fell in love with the one stroke technique at once, delighted with how alive a leaf or flower can look when painted with a double (or more) loaded brush brimming with vibrant Folk Art enamel paint. I paint canvas and stones and other media as well, and am trying to reclaim a lost joy of mine from my childhood I gave up along with other things I loved when I was treated as if they were stupid by an abuser. I am trying to recover from what was decades of manipulation and terrifying abuse by a relative who was an authority figure now, and am feeling happy now that has been removed from my family's lives hopefully for good, and replaced with warm, joyous experiences that nourish the soul instead of hurting.

My dream is to someday own just a little house in some sort of cottage stye, that is surrounded by forest and nature, and maybe even be near the ocean and the beaches. Nature and the stars is truly the joy of my heart after my children.

I am very experienced and educated in IT, and am a Computer Science student at the University of the People, but art is what sings to my very being. I hope someday to earn enough to make my dream for my small family become a reality and enjoy both art AND programming from that little home with a warm breeze blowing through, with a view of a big garden and my family in the yard from where I work. The idea of such peace and being surrounded by nature while I can exercise both my mind's logic and reasoning on the computer AND express the creative thoughts that also swirl through me is a fantasy dreamscape. Something that seems so small to others but would be everything to me.

In the meantime, I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada (where I have made many friends despite being an introvert!) for now with my two youngest children, Emz and Lucas, our three oafish cats, Squeebz (orange), Benji (black and white),and Nigel (red Arabian Mau who is NOT graceful but remarkably awkward for a cat!), Otis the ball python, and Cactus the gecko. We find pleasure in living by camping, taking my little boy to basketball, baseball, football, and his other sports and activities!, joining the children at his school for field trips, reading, writing, painting of course, and cooking meals, enjoying Sci-Fi, and talking about how we love cats or just sitting quietly or joking with Emz. I have the most strikingly beautiful, gregarious, and multi-talented older daughter too, named Sarah, who with her hubby Brad just last year had a beautiful sparkling, sunny-smiled little baby girl named Sailor.

That little baby girl is the wee little Sailor Grey!

    Painting and drawing is the outward expression of the joy of my heart and soul. Sailor Grey is my sweet baby granddaughter. In her smile I see her and my other children and pets who are my world.
