Artist Statement

My inspiration is my mother. I grew up watching her learn from Bob Ross and I was always marveled by her dedication. She's always been my #1 fan; there to lend tips and techniques but also there to push me further than I think I can go. My Art is also inspired by beauty of nature & people. Even though I'm still learning, I feel that my art has a voice & should be heard by all those who will listen. I use Acrylic Paint because honestly, it was just there for me to use. I never was steadfast on a particular medium; it's just something that was easily accessible and I learned how to use it to my liking. I might not be using it properly or most efficiently as other artists but I operate in what I've become accustomed to.

Artist Bio

My name is Rochelle Walker and I'm a Visual Artist. I started teaching myself how to draw at 12 but it wasn't till I turned 26 that I I finally took art seriously. I spent a short period of time at The Art Institute of NYC for Web Design but art has always been my passion. 2 years ago, I taught myself how to paint land and seascapes by watching Bob Ross & getting tips from other Artists.

About a year ago, after working on land and seascapes, I wanted to challenge myself and do what I felt was the impossible for me...and that was realism. At first, I started doing pencil work and gradually progressed to paint. I wanted to put my own spin on images that interest me. Even though I have much to learn, I believe I have a certain style to my work that even I'm not clearly sure what particular genre it is. I do know it does stand out whether it's due to the flaws or the way I just go for it and either it's a hit or miss.
