ABOUT THE ARTIST

My name is Jocelyn, and I'm a Florida based abstract artist working mostly with acrylics. I started painting because of my love for color. I have always been drawn to artwork that feels very natural and fluid, where the end result is something that feels natural and not at all forced. Abstract art is a way for me to create beautiful images that express my emotions and instantly transport me to a place where I feel calm, yet enlivened by the colors and image on the canvas. My favorite aspect of paintings is that you can invoke those same emotions in the viewer as well. I feel like artwork can completely transform space it's in, making it a sanctuary for whomever is near.

I normally mix my own colors to come up with something that's really special and can convey what I or my client would want. I love to explore bright, bold colors, especially the blues of the ocean with its tropical hues, with bright bursts of orange or deep rich yellows. I also love muted or toned down colors where the details lie more in the way the image flows and contrast achieved without a huge range of color. I love everything about paintings, from learning where each pigment comes from, to different finishes and why one would be better suited for something than another. There are so many possibilities out there when it comes to creating something beautiful, and I intend to explore them all.

 

Please look over my work in the gallery and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
