What is the Essence of Laurel and Art from the Heart?

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls."Pablo Picasso

For me, the best description of 'Art From the Heart' is that it is bestowed by life and embroidered by imagination! That is the Essence of Laurel.

One day at an art show, a man walked into the Essence of Laurel booth. He was very taken by my work and asked me, “where within you does this come from?” I pointed to my heart and said, “right here - it is story art from my heart.” The man smiled and said, “I can see that.” It was then that I knew the name for my artwork should be Art from the Heart.

Many people ask me, when viewing my work, “What is that – is it a photograph? Is it a painting? What medium do you use?”

“I digitally fuse my photographs, pastels, and drawings, and blend them to create a new composition. I then create new colors, shapes, lines, curves, details, and perspectives ~ until a piece of Art from the Heart emerges.

The words I hear most often at art shows, when people encounter at my work, are “inspirational” and “moving.” It is then that I know that my unique art has touched someone’s spirit and found its purpose. 'Art from the Heart' is filled with whimsical and dreamlike weaves of color, movement, and light.
