San Diego-based artist Moira Lumpkin creates paintings using acrylic on canvas. Her style is a blend of modernist abstract styles - strong brush strokes, rich textures and vibrant colors. Living in southern California, her love for the ocean and the protection of its beauty and resources is unconditional. This deep love of the ocean has given inspiration to many of her paintings - some themes include surf and landscapes from local landmarks and locations, sky and ocean, or sometimes figures or ideas that convey a message. Her paintings feature natural color pigments using high quality paints with the blending of colors and abstract concepts, with a focus on capturing the moment from her mind's eye for the viewer's perspective of the image. She tries to instill more of an abstract vision in her art as opposed to looking at a photo image, leaving enough room for the viewer's imagination.
"I've never been a fan of consensus. I strive to make art that looks how I see it and not what other people think art should be, or what art critics say is good. Each of my pieces has a unique look because each piece is a unique idea from start to finish. 'My style' is not easily discernible, because the techniques I use vary from piece to piece, but they are all my creations, and I'm proud of my work. I hope others can connect with my work and follow me on my journey to create." -Brandon
