Artist Statement – Ida Mitchell
I am inspired by many artists. Artists that are among my favorites
are Georgia O’ Keefe, Sam Gilliam and Sculptor Chakaia Booker.
I painted in oils, just a little, but most of my work is in acrylic. I do some mix
media work in sand, ink and spray paint. I am devoted to exploring, learning and experiment with other medium and techniques.
My process in creating not only through sketching, but just starting on a blank canvas and feeling my way while painting, sometime seeing images and expanding on this.
How do I feel about my art. I’m amazed at some of the painting that I have
created and how it was develop into different stages. It is hard for me to judge my work when I am fully engage into creating. I am exploring, seeing different images, colors and using different strokes in order to achieve the level where I am take it to my satisfaction enough to sign my signature.
