Shyanne Kelly Art statement
What kind of an artist am I? I was mostly attracted to the act of drawing when I was younger. Everyone seems to have a uniquely different style in art. My art is playful, expressing my feelings with vibrant colors. I have fun in creating those colors.
The first person who inspired me to engage in art was my grandmother. She introduced me such mediums as painting, coloring, drawing and sewing as a kid. Then in high school, it was my art teacher Mr. Koutsky. He had broadened my insight into art by exposing me to additional mediums. Those experiences led me to decide attending the program Visual Communications at Medicine Hat College.
Among popular masters, Vincent Van Gogh stands out most as the source of my inspiration. He creates movements with his unique brushstrokes to portray his personal emotions through his subject matters in his paintings. In the design field, I am fascinated by the fact how simple and modern it can be. I was not inspired by any other designer, from what I saw other students creations in graphic design class. I appreciate the complexity of Fine arts and the simplicity of graphic design.
Who I am as an artist today? It’s the people in the past to present that have influenced me to do art. I use my art to influence others to create art, and to express myself. Art is my passion in life that I will never give up and learn from every year.
I have plans to further my education by taking more art, and philosophy classes, and volunteering at the local arts center and at the musical theatre. Eventually I like to find a position as a teacher’s assistance for kids to learn art.
