WHAT IS ABSINTHE ART?
Like the drink Absinthe, a favorite among the Bohemians and Artists in 1800's Paris. The 'elixir' was to induce euphoria and bring forth 'The Green Fairy' 'aka' Muse. My metaphor is bringing transformation by the inner quest within, finding your true-self expressed through creativity. I am Michelle LeAnn Scott, and my Art Gallery here is 'Absinthe Art.' I'm completely self-taught eclectic artist and free-spirit, usually creating from wherever my spirit leads. I have done art ever since I can remember and have used many different mediums.
Never went to any 'Fancy-Pants' art school, nor was I born with a 'Silver Spoon' in my mouth. Growing up in a hippie family in the 60's and 70's, was a long strange trip indeed. Life is not a bowl of cherries when your inducted into the 'School-of-Hard-Knocks 101,' and majoring in many trials and tribulations. I have many health problems I battle on a daily basis, and my art gives me peace and happiness, a voice and a platform to express myself and explore my creativity. Through this I try and understand myself better...which is therapy within itself. I also give back a part of my proceeds to others who have suffered and that need help in various places. Like layers of an onion, a part of me is left with each piece of art I create. May you be touched in some way by my art, Welcome and Enjoy :)
