Cortney North's Profile

About

First I want to say ‘thank you’ for visiting my online studio and viewing my artwork. Being an artist is the most wonderful career I could imagine and it's made even better by getting to share that passion with you. I thrive on being in the studio mixing colors, feeling inspired by nature and knowing that I'm living my dream.

"My appreciation for abstract paintings and sculptures has been around since I can remember. There is something so instinctual for me about abstract art. You are taking away the literal and expected to assess the art with your emotions instead of just your eyes. It's why I love experimenting with new color combinations, textures and lines.

Abstract art can seem intimidating or pretentious since there is no subject - at times it can even seem ethereal. I want my art to be accessible and understood by the feelings it gives the viewer. In a world that is over-saturated by negativity, I want to put visually cheerful art on display. It is my respite when I create and blend the colors on the canvas, but I want the viewer to have respite when looking at the canvas."
