Earlier this year we worked with Jennifer Hallock, a native New-Englander, on some exclusive artwork for sale in our stores. Here, she shares a peek behind her inspiration.
What is your inspiration?
“Color and form is typically the inspiration behind all of my work, whether abstract or not. Color has the power to really move and inspire all of us, but for me, I also use it to express myself. Creating art is often a process of letting go and “releasing” something intangible.”
What do you focus on?
“Most of my work utilizes bright or cheerful colors because that’s the mood I’m reflecting at the time. I tend to focus on cloudscapes because they involve a sense of movement and freedom in form which gives way to lots of space for interpretation. Mixing the colors, moving the brush across the canvas, it’s almost a form of meditation for me.”
What’s your favorite part about the process?
“There’s no right or wrong, good or bad; it’s just about the process. And a lovely bonus when the finished product is a reflection of the beauty of that process!”
