mimi sturman biography
First and foremost, I am a storyteller. All of my paintings and sculptures include a visual and written narrative. I am very interested in texture and my work is bright and bold - and I hope new and fresh. I work in series form and each time I begin a new endeavor I attempt to push myself further away from what I have done before. My new work is a culmination of many years of paintings and my newest love which is fiber art. I began about five years ago doing single needle felting. The projects started very small, but now are getting larger and larger. I also combine my oil painting with felted pieces adhered to the work. This gives the paintings more dimension. All of my work is self-invented folk lore which elicits an emotional reaction. That what all my art work strives to achieve. I continue to be excited working in these mediums. I believe this shows in the finished product.
