“I find myself drawn to subject matters with light and color that celebrate life’s fleeting moments,” says Power. “I enjoy painting on location, immersing myself in the present and capturing a sense of our personal place in history. We each have a life story and whether I’m painting cars in Cuba, or light-filled moments of children or animals; I’m always struck by life’s fragility, the juxtaposition of beauty and joy interspersed with loss that exists in each of our lives. Art brings me more joy and I hope to share that with others.”
Award-winning artist Power credits her mom, who also paints; and growing up on an island off the Swedish coast for providing a childhood full of creative exploration and a love for the outdoors. This adventurous spirit brought Power to the States and eventually finding work in animation. There she spent more than a decade fine-tuning her sense of light, color and setting a mood, working as a background painter for studios like Disney, Warner Bros., Cartoon Network and Universal. Power now dedicates her time to painting in oils outdoor and in her studio.
