Tomball Art League - Meeting & Guest Artist Demo

Tomball Art League - Meeting & Guest Artist Demo

EVENT DETAILS

Our meetings are held in the LSC-Tomball Community Library meeting room, 30555 Tomball Pkwy, 77375. Join us at 10:30 (doors open at 10:00) for a brief business meeting followed by socializing/networking and finish with an inspiring demo artist. We welcome Brenda McDougall! Brenda was born and raised in North Texas and has always known who she was and what she wanted to be - an artist. Her visual ramblings and creative reflections tell more about who she is in her own special way. Artist Statement: Art is not a fixed process but rather a journey. The process and materials I use to create my work start as a vision in my mind’s eye which is sometimes difficult to articulate in words. I love to use mixed media to convey that vision. The original uses of the objects used in mixed media, their texture and look, their placement in the new object, are important parts of the new message being conveyed. My creative reflections come from my soul, they are who I am now, tomorrow and forever. My art is a reflection of my belief in imagination and wonderment which we all see every day but don’t really see it for what it is. My painting is the language with which I convey my love for, passion for and excitement of my surroundings. I don’t remember in my life time when I wasn’t influenced by what I saw. I look for humor, beauty, color, vales, light, composition, and design. All of these elements, along with emotion, spirit and truth call for my desire to help people to see what is around them and smile at what they see. Each time I approach my easel, I have a feeling of excitement to begin capturing what I see. I love the process and journey that I go through to create my art hoping to bring a smile to someone’s face. It makes me happy and If I can make someone else happy then my job as an artist has been fulfilled. I attended the Sarasota School of Art, where I earned a BFA in Studio Art. I earned a second degree from Midwestern State University in Communication and Commercial Art. I am currently working full time at my home studio in The Woodlands, Texas focused primarily on painting, alcohol Inks, mixed media, and web design art. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Are you an artist?
