I have always been a lover of the arts. Whether it be handmade jewelry, performing arts, music, or painting. Surrounding myself with the creations of others gives me a sense of connection with humanity, an intimacy that is truely food for my soul. For this reason, I have decided to showcase a mini series on the blog featuring some of my favorite local, national, and international artists who’s works grace the walls of my humble abode. Today I am featuring a budding local Memphis artist, Jeannie Shelton whos galactic like abstract pieces will add a sense of peace and tranquility to any room.
MEET JEANNIE – LOCAL MEMPHIS ARTIST
Creativity has always been one of my core beliefs and favorite escape. My background is in business, and I have a full-time job in the corporate environment. While I am allowed some creativity at my job, painting really allows me to express my soul, unleash my emotions, and share my experience with the world in a beautiful and meaningful way. While I dabble in both acrylic and oil paints, I truly lose myself when I embark on an oil painting, but the journey is always worth it.
