cjheery's Profile Picture
Celeste J. Heery
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
I begin a new painting with brush strokes of color that call to me, then I follow the direction that the painting dictates. I never approach the canvas with preconceived ideas.

My mind goes silent and I let the painting take over. The most important thing for me is to focus on the process and not the result. Most of all, I try to just let go.

My best work comes from a place of quiet and inner peace.

I paint fast and spontaneously. It helps me cover more ground and allow the spirit to flow through me. The painting takes on a life of its own. It gives me confidence, to trust where I am going and not worry about the destination.

When I am painting, the cares of the world are left behind. I am free to let my thoughts be quiet and allow my focus to be on each next step as it arrives.

When I focus on the enjoyment of painting, and not on the approval of others, I produce better work.

If I define success by how many paintings I sell, I will never be satisfied.

I have works in private collections in Texas, Florida, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

My work has been featured at Silent Poetry in Burnsville, NC, The Appalachian Artisan Society Gallery in Old Fort, NC, Mountain Java in Candler and Asheville, NC, The Garage in Asheville, NC, Green Hands Healing Center, Asheville, NC, Razcal's Restaurant in Asheville, True Blue Art Supply, Asheville NC, Neo Burrito on Patton Avenue in Asheville, NC, The Alligator Grille in Murrells Inlet, SC, the North Myrtle Beach City Hall, Fitness X, Studio B, and the Whispering Palms Art Gallery in Myrtle Beach, SC.

I was also featured in a show at Adorn Salon & Boutique in Asheville, NC and at the North Myrtle Beach City Hall in SC.

I have been named Global Art Collectors Artist of the Week as well as nominated for Facebook's World Art Critics Artist of the Month.

I am also an amateur photographer.
