STACIE FLINT - Acrylic
What is most notable about my expressive oil or acrylic paintings and commissioned portraits are the vibrant color and direct energy.
For commissions I use a softly defined approach. For my paintings I use imagery of people, places, and objects from my life, imagination, and reference photos and reinvent them through a playful expression.
When in my studio I go away from worldly concerns and go to an intuitive realm of joy because that is what I want to feel and that is what I want to share.
The paintings are honest, soulful, animated, inspirational, fun, harmonious, and relatable.
People often comment that they feel joy when viewing my art. That is because it touches the center where we all have joy. Life is imperfect, but joy is our birthright. My painting is Love Through Art.
I paint for the joy of creation, to celebrate the spirit, to satisfy the eye, to engage in childlike imagination, to feel free, to use juicy color, to connect and inspire people, for the love of art!
