Gallery@501 Member of the Month - Ting Pimentel-Elger

Oil paintings

Ting's Process

"I get inspiration from my mountain hikes or Sherwood Park walks. Even staring at the pink prairie skies or the glimmer of a neighbor’s hand crafted candle but mostly from art around me. Then sometimes it just happens - I gather my ample art supplies (mostly recycled & natural materials) and get to work. I try to shut down my inner critic and motivate my inner creative to come out and play. Taking a minute to breathe in and out, a moment of silent meditation and yoga always put me at ease and deeper into the flow. Oh, how it glows (sometimes)."
