ARTIST STATEMENT

An “Impasto Painter” in pursuit of the very footsteps of Monet, Manet, VanGogh.

Her dramatic, colorful style has won recognition as a diverse artist - interpreting objects, scenes and familiar places, using an atypical and romantic approach. She layers her oils, carefully displaying thick, yet smooth strokes of the brush. Free and wild sometimes, her art uses studied mode and technique - but her imagination adds its own flavorful color and vibrancy. People, places, florals, cars and trucks, and shoes are among her favorite and diverse subjects.

Full of wanderlust and traveling all over the world, photographing, painting, collecting images, and stories, she believes her artistic journey is on-going` and forever expanding.


ABOUT THE ARTIST

Attending art school in Atlanta, Georgia, with the intention of becoming a painter, Skye soon discovered she loved the camera, landing her jobs as a commercial and fine art photographer. After 25 years of photographing professionally, the digital age approached and she found herself wanting to return to painting. Photography still plays a very important role in her life and in painting - from composition and lighting to subject matter.

Gratefully and joyfully, she is frequently asked to jury student photography competitions.

Inspired by Monet, a love for gardens and their beauty has forever been a part of her. And now, she has a landscaping business - planting and maintaining luxurious gardens throughout the Denver area.

"Gardening, painting, (and even photography) are intertwined – each enlivened and influenced by life's subjects, color, texture, dimension, shape, and rhythm. Painting the earth is like painting on canvas."
