My YouTube channel is called Darlene's World and it's where I discuss things that matter to me as a writer and a painter: Such things include historical research, culture, Jungian psychology and of course, Art.
I come from the hill country of southern Kentucky. I think I was born with a paintbrush in one hand and a pencil in the other. I've been painting, drawing and writing since my earliest memories. I have always been a child of nature, seeing the spiritual and the eternal in the everyday, the ordinary and the present. I try to communicate those insights through my work, giving an ethereal quality to the ordinary people and countryside around me.
I experiment with a variety of mediums, acrylics, oils (predominantly), pencil and pastel. I have painted many murals in the Kentucky area and have designed several monuments like the one pictured above. However, my main focus is commissioned work. I am currently working on a theme entitled: Country Girls.
My work is inspired by the land where I have lived and the people I have known. I strive to capture mood and provide a glimpse of "spirit" in all of my work, whether it be poetry or painting. I wish my work to be visual chimes on a soft breeze, to transport viewers to a world of tranquility and thought of spirit and life.
