What Inspires My Artworks?

WATERCOLOR ARTIST MARY-LOU PLOSS

The overarching theme and inspiration for my art is simultaneously my life vision – reaching out to become the best version of myself while holding life in reverence despite its difficulties and hardships.

I’ve come to paint primarily with watercolors as I found myself
enchanted by the flowing beauty of this medium. Painting with this medium is like a dance from which artworks of female figures and nature emerge that inherit my 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 journey through life and art as it is for me.

My paintings begin either by me stumbling over a photograph which draws me in and I find out what kind of feeling I am painting during the process, or I know right from the start what feeling I want to express . In either case it is always an adventure and play.

What Is My Vision?

Even as art has always been a huge part of myself I didn’t managed to follow my passion with a professional art education. Instead I ended up studying human-computer-science. But through this “detour” I learnt that coding is not for me, worked on my personal growth and new wonderful souls entered my life. It feels like I first needed to start the process of finding myself to be able to pursue my dreams.

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 – making a living of my art and creating a loving community. Additionally 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
