We create your art with your voice – your story as the inspiration.
Step by Step
The first step is to hear your story. I will ask questions of you that you might not expect. We are not working towards an exact image of your story, but rather an interpretation based on the emotion, memories, details and meaningful connections you share. This is abstract expressionism, done Harmony style.
Whether you are celebrating one year, ten, or fifty years with your partner, anniversaries provide a great tale behind the painting. We have a chance to blend the two stories into one. What better way to celebrate your history and hopes for the future?
You might have travelled to Tuscany, Taiwan, or taken an African safari. Maybe your travels are in search of mystics, lost civilisations, or solitude at a cabin in the woods. Memories and emotions from a getaway trip make peaceful and inspirational artworks.
Childhood memories or reflections of past relationships or service, each of us own treasured memories that have shaped our lives. Captured in rich colors and textures, your memories take on new life through your unique artwork.
What better way to commemorate two individuals who choose to share one life together than to capture the textures, create the blends, move with the lines of two unique paths that become one?
I love a family painting. Each family member is included in the story telling, and everyone’s story becomes expressions within the artwork. Maybe your artwork is a collection of smaller paintings that make up a whole collection or perhaps each person is a color.
Some things that happen in life are worth capturing in paint. Tumultuous times can be emphasized by texture, emotional breakthroughs may need bright colors. Shapes often speak of times in our lives. Your experiences are unique – so is your painting; it’s your story.
This part is so much fun! Once I have an idea of your story, I will take it into what I call incubation. I just “sit” with the ideas and allow creative energy to work.
Time to Get to Work
We will work together on ideas for your painting. I will send texture ideas and color concepts to you in photos and maybe drop by with a couple sample ideas, (that could turn into gifts). Your story is your art, and although I do work of creation and fine tuning , when we are done you will recognize your voice loud and clear.
Sizes are negotiable. We can use mixed media if you like, creating a collage to tell your story. Paintings can be on wood planks, cotton or linen canvasses, or maybe an old door – the variety is endless. It’s unique. It’s your story in abstract expression!
Look below at just a sample of the textures I do – with you! You can choose elements or leave it all to me. MyStory Art is YOUR STORY.

I am the luckiest, most blessed, absolutely spoiled woman alive! By doing the work I do I am able to accomplish everything I have as a personal passion and call it a JOB! Listening to people’s unique perspective and stories fascinated me since I was a small child. Interpreting things through creative problem solving and idea generation, as well as the actual painting itself – can life get any sweeter? Then there is the ABSOLUTE JOY of your face when your painting is delivered and becomes a part of your family legacy.
“EYES THAT LOOK ARE COMMON, EYES THAT SEE ARE RARE.”
If you put 10 people in a room and show them the same animate or inanimate object, you will have 10 widely differing descriptions. Just ask a police investigator about the accuracy of eye-witness accounts! We see according to the context we are looking in, our biased perspective, our hidden prejudices and much more. I much prefer to capture the essence, make personal connections that have deep meaning to the viewer and allow them the curiosity and adventure of exploring the meaning themselves.
