MiMi Stirn - Artist Statement

My favorite art tools are knives. They are unforgiving yet clear and finite when used. Working within the acrylic family is fun, but working with modeling paste is where the art begins; free form and each application is a form of sculpting. What I love best about creating art is the freedom of expression without fear of consequence. When I am able to say a work has turned out well, is actually the moment when I can return to the finished piece over the course of several days and repeatedly be transported into the picture itself.

My style centers on both working in circular and straight line motions, while respecting Fibonacci sequences in the placement of each element. Other techniques include sgraffito and resin pours. However, bright light, layers of color, and use of metallic pigments are my standard. What I do differently from what I was taught is dirty brushing. My brushes & knives during the painting process are usually lapped with new colors without actually washing them; I love the mystery of the blends, and the picture always turns out beautiful. My favorite color on the spectrum is Prussian blue, and is usually incorporated in to my skies, water scenes, and shadowing.

Short Bio: In 2010, my husband and I moved to Cape Coral Florida from Washington State. I work in my art studio in Cape Coral and when not in the studio, I am Marketing Director at FGCU at the Small Business Development Center. I hold my degree in Art and Business Administration and am a Certified Marketing Strategist through Cornell University.
