Danielle Rogers

 Artist statement

My inspiration comes from the emotions evoked by the world around me. 
I have noticed that many of my works are anchored in my heart’s home, Belgium, 
where I grew up and my mom and siblings still live.

“ Paint is my vocabulary and the canvas is my story. 
I don’t often end up where I planned to go but I always love 
the direction the painting takes me. “

My preference is acrylic paint because I can quickly capture the moment.
My drawings with pen are done in a minimalistic manner and my collages are very colorful.

 I bring my creations from realism to abstract-realism.

 This is my mind’s art!

Liliana Washburn Artwork on Display at Kent Public Library


                              Title: "Majestic"

 Liliana Washburn  

Artist Statement:

My desire is bringing beauty and happiness into people’s life. Art is therapeutic. It has the power of healing the most profound wounds and promoting insight. Through the use of water media, I express my deepest emotions.

My inspiration comes from my personal feelings, from the emotions I feel when I look at a mother holding her child, at lovers looking at each other.  I use lines and colors to morph shapes that express those feelings as stored in my memories, in my dreams. I call my work human-nature, because it is human nature to express all feelings. It is sharing them that allows us to connect to each other.

I paint because it makes me feel happy. It is my hope that when you look at my work we can share that moment of happiness.
