Darlene Podpolucki

Sparta, MI, United States

I graduated from Kendall School of Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I majored in Interior Design. During my time at Kendall I received several awards for creativity. After 25 plus years as an Interior Designer, I am now following my dream and heart to create personal art. I have studied art in Italy, Australia and the United States over the years. I am a mixed media artist employing an experimental approach in my work. I find myself stretching or bending so call “rules” to attain a desired look for my art. Preferring to record positive emotions and let the experience of creating guide me, I may not start with a sketch and often have a vision of how the finished piece will present itself. Working with a flex time schedule allows the piece to speak to me until the proper process to finish the piece becomes clear. "Inspired by nature I create imagery and sensations of joy, color, movement and harmony. My work has been described as imaginative, playful and filled with energy and hope. I work in layers technically, intellectually and spiritually. By using various media and materials I create a conversation with the viewer.
