Artists are inspired by many different things. Emotions, places, scenery, as well as activism all provoke artists to create. For me, my jewelry is inspired by making a statement, usually geared toward humanism, yet the most beautiful view will cause me to pick up a paint brush.
For gallery artist, Jane Faudree, it is an emotion, especially in her abstract paintings. Though the beauty of the world and the mixing of the paints, the act of 'doing', is also an inspiration to her.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Different things motivate each of us. What inspires you?
