Capturing the Imagination
I dream while I’m awake; and paint in my sleep ~ Milessa Murphy Stewart

Milessa Painting in VeniceImagination makes it possible to experience a whole world inside the mind. It gives the ability to look at any situation from a different point of view, and to mentally explore the past and the future.

My art creates visible thinking and encourages the imagination. I mix a dab of fiction, maybe some facts; add a bit of humor and a lot of color. They are energetic and quirky with clues to a playful story. As an intuitive painter, it’s my ongoing collection of experiences, apropos of everything up until now, that transport you into a colorful, happy place. My palette is made up of buttery oils like the ones used by the Impressionists, Monet and Renoir, but I would say my style is more like Van Gogh.

Being your own curator and collector of my art gives you a unique style that others will not have but want. Not to mention, it will inspire thought and questions, engaging the viewer to think and learn about the subject matter. It certainly will kick-start a worthwhile dialogue between anyone enjoying it.

All products I use are archival and professional grade oil colors.  A lot of care and love has been cultured into each of my paintings. Rest assured, you are getting Fine Art not a canvas with house paint poured and splattered on it.
