My journey with making art began in 2009 while I was recuperating from a serious illness. I had always been an art lover and visited museums and galleries both in Manhattan and various places I had travelled to throughout the world. I had never thought about painting during all of those years.
I was invited to take an art class from a local artist and that was the beginning of this wonderful part of my new life as an artist. I expanded my education to online classes which broadened my outlook and sparked a talent which was never explored. Every medium that I work with seems to push me further in my interest to keep learning and painting. The creative process is an intrinsic part of my life that I cannot live without.
Abstraction has opened my eyes to color, line, space and texture and has brought me to a new level as a painter. At this point of my life, I cannot imagine how I had ever lived without expressing the art from within me for all of these years. I look forward to many, many more years of experimentation, learning and painting to become the best artist I can be.
Thank you for taking the time to view my art. Margaret Henning
