I'm a mature woman who has had a hard life since childhood onwards.  I think I've covered most of life's biggies .... childhood abuse, death/trauma x 2, marriage to a personality disordered individual, mental health issues, etc, etc.  My art has always been my refuge.  It's the thing I do to find solace, or process emotions, or just simply take time out from the maddening world.  It has been my saviour.  Most of my art is intuitive.  I never start anything with any vision and just let it flow any which way it wants until it is complete.  That's why you'll find various styles, themes, colour schemes, etc.  It just depends on the mood of the day and where I'm at.  My first submissions on DeviantArt were "safe" because I felt unsafe exhibiting my "darker" work.  I'm starting to feel a lot more comfortable now after breaking the ice and slowly submitting some of my darker artwork.  All my art work is significant to me in some way and is fundamentally a visual journal of where my head was at when I created it.  I have enormous diversity when it comes to art.  Over the years I've covered everything - oils, acrylic, mixed media, water colour, pencils, charcoal, pastels, ink, canvas, paper, etc.  I can do highly detailed work, abstract, realistic, simplified, detailed, colourful, monochromatic.  As an "artist" I feel ill-defined as such because of this, but I'm now embracing my diversity and just view each piece for what it is.  I truly appreciate anyone who likes my work and hope that it connects and resonates with them like it has with me.  Just had to say this as a heads up for the diversity you'll see in my gallery cause it doesn't make sense but I guess it does if you consider the spectrum of human emotion.  Thanks to anyone and everyone who gets it and likes my work.


Jarrilee's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I have done art all my life, starting with my colour pencils and crayons as a child and then using every available medium at some stage. These days I've gravitated towards digital art and am loving it. Most of my art depicts my emotions and holds great personal significance to me. It is a visual diary of my own personal journey through life. My art speaks when all words fail.
