Shirley Horacek – Artist
True joy in life is having the opportunity to pursue what you are passionate about and for me that is the creative process I enjoy when painting with watercolors or experimenting with other artistic mediums. My work emphasizes my love for color and texture as well as my enjoyment of the beauty of the natural forms in our world. Watercolor is an elusive medium that allows spontaneity and unplanned outcomes, while celebrating the luminosity of transparent paint. I also truly enjoy experimenting with the addition of other mediums to create more vibrant passages and surprising textures, pushing myself in new directions and meeting new challenges.
