Nicole Burnett – When my ideas and creativity mix, art is created. I’m inspired by traveling and finding beauty in my surroundings. Then I create art using bright beautiful colors. My designs transport people to a happy place for just a few moments allowing them to see art through my eyes.
The positive focus, vibrancy, and movement of each piece portrays many of the feelings and experiences that inspire me. My collection is truly a portrait and reflection of my life. My appreciation for travel, water and nature and the feeling it evokes, always inspires me to create.
I am in awe with the design and composition that surrounds us each day right in our line of sight. I take what I see such as textures, lines, shapes and colors that inspire me to create art through my eyes.
Over the years I have blended all this to create and find my own expression. Through layering, brushstrokes and the application of color I am able to express a distinctive style hoping to give my artwork a breath and life of its own. We live in such a fast paced and often stressful world that sometimes we miss the natural beauty going on around us that Nature so generously offers. I am trying to recapture the scenes that bring so much joy and happiness and simply share them with others. Having attended Savannah College of Art and Design with my Degree in Art, I am happily focusing my time on designing a collection of art for the public to view and enjoy that will inspire, provide feeling and passion like my art has done for me.
