January Artists of the Month
The Gallery at Eagle City Hall - Ulysses Albert III
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a desire to express myself through visual art. Being rather introverted, art was and still is my way of journaling my thoughts, fears, hopes and dreams. I've always had a love for creating surreal, symbolic types of work with a strong
sense of realism. When I became Christian my methods for how I portrayed my work hadn't changed, just the subject matter and story I wanted to tell.
I grew up in California and graduated from Laguna College of Art and Design in 2007, my college years and prior were a time in my life where much of my art expressed feelings of pain, anger, depression and hopelessness. I became a Christian in 2011, and since then I use the tools and skills I have developed in College to create art filled with hope, life, beauty and peace. In 2013 I made Idaho my home, and the paintings you see I have created since my move. I feel I have been given a gift and at the end of the day I want to honor God and bless others with it.
Currently residing in Boise Idaho, when I'm not creating personal works I paint and draw portraits and illustrations for various clients. It has truly been a blessing living here as I have had the opportunity to display my work at the Eagle Saturday Market the past 4 years, the Eagle City Hall in 2015, and St. Lukes' Hospital in both Boise and Meridian last in 2016. I look forward to what the Lord has in store for me in the future as I continue to grow in my relationship with Him and grow in my art as well.
The Gallery at St. Luke's Eagle - Marie J. Schrillo
I see the world in all its beauty and intricacies not only through the visual pictures it offers, but also through our written word. As our world becomes more of an electronic model of communication as we text and email, I hope to grasp the viewers' attention to stop and really see the beauty not only in color, paint and imagery, but also in letters. The power of the written word is as influential and compelling as the visual image.
To make the viewer feel an emotion or recall a particular moment in their life is my goal. To write and breathe emotion onto a page or canvas is perhaps one of the greatest abilities and gifts to being human.
