About Tasha Nichole Art
Artist Statement-I am an abstract painter. My paintings illustrate the emotional effects on the mind, body and spirit. Through the use of vibrant colors, shapes, and bold brush strokes my paintings evoke a spiritual connection. I paint what I feel not what I see. I’m simply the vessel painting people's emotional stories. Releasing these feelings and emotions through my hands and transmitting the energy of my soul to the canvas visually depicts the voice of the voiceless and sets them free.
If emotions were an image, what would it look like? How do these emotions harmonize together? What needs to be resolved? These are questions I explore when I paint. I explore my feelings, transmitting the energy of my soul to the canvas. The imagery, message, or feeling from my paintings are for someone’s healing, the answer to a prayer or a reminder.
