K. Coralee Burch
Art is my passion, my joy, my ability to overcome adversity, my opportunity to express myself, and it’s just plain fun. I have struggled to learn, improve and grow. Right now I fluctuate between experimenting and learning through several media, and intent to express myself. They are both important to me. I would say my abilities in problem solving outweigh my creativity and technical skill and therefore I am always seeking a new approach to something and way to artistically solve a visual problem I pose for myself. Sometimes I paint spontaneously and sometimes I think about and study an idea for days and work on the various steps to make it happen. Sometimes I redo a theme when I feel I have finally conquered my process. My art is a work in progress and always will be. I believe in Karma, a chance in this world to manipulate the material in order to grow spiritually. Art is part of my Karma, my challenge along with being the love of my life.
