Visionary Artist and Children's Book Author
The mission, to connect the imagination with the heart , for the imagination is the key to unlocking the faculties of the mind. It is a tool, a coping mechanism, a deeper understanding, a motivation, an inspiration. My goal is to relate imagination and spirit to the masses, through art and creative processes, an array of boundless possibilities will arise.
Tiesha Cooper, A native Californian, born in Escondido CA, draws her inspiration from the rich roots of the Pacific Northwest, and the influence of patterns from nature and the stars. Materializing from a place of confidence and freedom, based on the sheer motivation and awe-inspiring beauty in nature, and mystery of the macrocosm; there are no mistakes, all has it’s place. In this she is fearless and intrigued as every drip of ink, breath of air, and stroke of color emanates an image of nature. Some artistic influences include Salvador Dali, Pablo Amaringo, Georgia O'Keefe, and a multitude of contemporary artists, who serve as a constant source of creative enlightenment.
When people “see” my art, I am more or less concerned on whether or not the subject matter is understood, but, more so interested in the level of spirit, energy, and connection one receives from viewing my work. When creating my art, I strive to be completely present and in tune with my work, letting go of all inhibitions and allowing my creativity to be birthed through my fingertips. I use a wide range of materials such as: oils, acrylics, inks, watercolors, and colored pencils. Beginning with a basic idea or image I have in mind, from here, spontaneity takes its place. Painting what I feel at that moment; pattern, color, strokes, repetition, layer upon layer, each emphasizing the last. When at work, I am constantly reminded of the power of the imagination, and am conscious of the level of energy and love I put forth into every piece .
