Emerging Artist - Cranston's Riverstone
Heidi Smyth - Cochrane Alberta
Why do I paint? I paint because it does not require words. It does not require explaining as you move through it. I can move in a different dimension when words and explaining feel so inadequate. It is a world of sensing, seeing, moving, feeling, expressing and pouring myself out in a purely intuitive way. I paint because I must. For me to be who I am meant to be in this world, I must paint. It is where I can let go, and explore and is a place of freedom where I am my very best self. I paint to bless others and hopefully touch people in unexpected ways.
How do I paint? I paint with hands, drops, brushes, spray bottles, sponges, prayer, scrapers, gravity, love, textures, glue, oils, acrylics. I paint on mostly canvas, but also paper, wood, canvas board, walls fabrics and there are a million other things I want to try.
Practical’s About Me. I am a Mom to two amazing girls and a wife to one great guy. I have been painting for about 7 years with no formal training but has attended some amazing workshops which contributes greatly to my process.
I can’t stop exploring as my ‘style’ is constantly evolving and L.O.V.E. doing commissions. I own a studio in Cochrane, AB called SMYTH art and STUDIO which is also evolving. I am always looking to help people create the atmosphere they are wanting in their home or work space.
