What Inspires My Artworks?
WATERCOLOR ARTIST MARY-LOU PLOSS
The overarching theme of my art is simultaneously my life’s vision – reaching out to become the best version of myself while holding life in reverence, despite its difficulties and hardships. Day to day life can be full of wonders – it’s just a question of perspective. And I now feel blessed enough to view and explore the world through the eyes and with the heart of an artist. This whole journey led me towards a deep connection with nature and life itself.
I’ve come to paint primarily with watercolors as I found myself enchanted by the flowing, unpredictable beauty of the medium. For me, watercolor captures the vividness and chaos of nature and life itself so very uniquely. In my brush stroke dance with watercolors emerge paintings of female figures and nature from inherent feelings of gratitude, joy, love and sometimes bittersweet pensiveness. I wish for my work to be an inspirational and fulfilling help to others on their journeys through life and art – as it has become for me.
My paintings begin by stumbling over a photograph which draws me in and I’m either eavesdropping for a feeling I’m trying to capture during the process, or I know it right away. In any case it is always a playful adventure.
What Is My Vision?
Despite art being always a huge part of me, I didn’t manage to follow my passion with a professional art education. Instead, I ended up studying human-computer-science, or in other words UI/ UX Design. Thanks to this detour I definitely learnt that coding is not for me. But more importantly, I worked on my personal growth and new wonderful souls entered my life. In hindsight, it feels like I first needed to start the process of finding myself, to then be able to pursue my dreams and art path.
In 2020 I rediscovered my passion for drawing and it quickly filled up all my spare time. The joy it sparked in my heart, plus the realization that I wanted to do it even more led to the revival of my vision of becoming a full-fledged artist and to make a living off my art. In addition, I explored and nourished my inner self through house dance, yoga and mindfulness practices. This gave me the strength needed for a leap of faith into the unknown.
Stepping into 2022 and beyond I am embarking on a journey full of challenges, goals to improve my art and marketing skills and reaching professional goals. I am not sure about how exactly it will play out but I will step forward with curiosity, gratitude, trust and love. And I am very grateful to have you with me <3
