More About the Artist

"My art is all about empowerment!  Empowerment, to me, is simply believing in yourself and your abilities." - Michele Renee Sherlock

 

Art no longer plays a secondary role in my life, it is front and center, drawing me in every day to create.  I meditate every morning, clearing my head and relaxing myself.  This prepares me to have a high energy “think session”, where I focus on creative projects and how I can accomplish them.  There is great satisfaction in taking steps toward your vision, and seeing each project to completion. 

My mission is to get to know my clients dreams and visions for their environment, and how they want the artwork to add to it.  LA is a creative incubator, filled with people who dream big and don’t let anything hold them back, and I am grateful to live here.  Since I am a baby boomer, I have had life experiences that have been glorious, and some that have brought me to despair.  I see the complexity and totality of life. My color selection tends to match the emotion I have brought to the surface. In my art process, I access my emotions, and I make a plan to put those emotions onto the canvas.  My art forms are from my imagination, and as the piece develops, it always changes as certain aspects emerge. I believe in adding different textural elements to the canvas, due to the complexity that has enveloped my life at certain points.  I never want to suppress this complexity, because it makes me who I am.  I consider myself a very authentic person, I have nothing to hide, I am truly hoping to engage in a relationship with my clients that can add meaning to both of our lives.
