Note from the artist:
"My creations communicate energetically, highlighting colors, textures and light. I am driven to connect and inspire people to live intentionally. I aim to encourage others to celebrate every day, to find and shine light as brightly as possible, and to consciously share energy, skills, talents, ideas and gifts with the world.
I love colors, energy and light. I also enjoy the smell of fresh paint, new canvas, and the time I get to spend creating. It's such a pleasure for me! Inspiration comes from many things-natural elements, colors and textures in nature, music, architecture, travel, people, sounds and emotions... I translate these experiences through my art and the mood that strikes me the moment I put paint onto canvas. A gravitation toward optimistic ideas and people is often transferred into my work. When I paint, I gain a lot of energy and feel as if I could paint throughout the entire day and night, without stopping.
Living abroad, I needed to communicate in a complex, foreign world, and yet, in this diverse, "global community," I was searching-between language barriers, cultural differences and questions around what I could contribute to society by being here. Through art, I reinvented myself to express what I needed the outside world to understand. In this transformative process, I discovered fearlessness and, unexpectedly, a massive sense of connection. My art became the medium in which I could build bridges between the gaps which I thought had existed (linking countries, communities, genders, lifestyles, cultures, languages, and even the space between heaven and earth)." -April Popko
