I've had the amazing pleasure of getting to know artist Courtney who lives and works out of Southern California. I'm not quite sure how I stumbled into her work, but I'm so glad I did. After a few back and forth messages, I knew I need to showcase her talent with a brush (and her creativity) so you all could see and get to know her better.
Courtney's passion and heart for not just art but the community she is creating around her work is inspiring and empowering. I promise, you will love her genuineness when it comes to creative struggles, finding the deeper meaning in your art, and just being an artist!
Hey Courtney, would you mind introducing yourself and what you do to the audience?
My name is Courtney Simone and I am the artist behind Courtney Simone Art. I am a visual artist creating art in various forms. My main passion is painting, but I recently took up jewelry making as well, and I love it. I love being able to create Art in other forms that speaks to my mood. My hope with my Art is that is evokes an emotion from the viewer in some way through the vibrant colors, bold shapes and textures that I use.
I live in Southern California on the outskirts of San Diego. I’m obsessed with a good crime show podcast, a cozy book, and of course a delicious cuppa coffee. I’m passionate about all things art related and it’s truly how I connect with the world. I am a firm believer that we as humans are all creative, just in various ways. I love helping people discover their unique way of bringing their creativity into the world.
