A little bit about myself; my name is Friday (yes like the day!) and I am originally a Southern California Artist who recently moved up to the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy painting, sketching, writing, playing instruments, and creating thought-provoking pieces. Heavily influenced by Van Gogh, I believe my artistic style is a mix between impressionism and expressionism. I enjoy using unique brush strokes for my paintings, capturing different sources of light, as well as utilizing a vivid color palette. It is my hope that when people view my work, they can sense the emotionally driven subject matter of my paintings. I am sharing a piece of me, my inner thoughts, hopes, and dreams, in all of my artwork. To have that reciprocated by my viewers sheds light on the complexity of human nature and the empathetic effect we have on each other. After all, I am not seeking perfection while I paint – I am seeking a sense of raw emotional truth.
