Artist Bio:
Lovejoy is currently a self-represented artist in San Diego for the last 8 years. Her focus is palette knife painting in the wildlife /ocean genera.  Lovejoy’s untraditional palette knife layering process brings depth and texture by playing with color theory. Color theory is the concept that we interpret a color based on the color next to it. In Lovejoy’s work you will see the same color in the highlights & shadows, but it looks different based on its location to other colors. See if you can spot that in her work.

Lovejoy graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design in 2003. Her goal when leaving Savannah was to earn a living as an artist and to be creative and active every day. She then spent the next seven years developing her style with the palette knife and bold use of color in Sedona, AZ. “I usually don’t know what my final art piece will look like when I start, only the subject and basic composition. Finding most of my creative flow within the wildlife genre, I developed a way to sculpt with paint, layer by layer. Creating a beautiful play of lights and shadows, full of unexpected colors side by side. It’s a dance, a push and pull until the form becomes whole. I find so much peace when I’m creating,” – Lovejoy.

Lovejoy currently resides in San Diego, CA and operates a studio/gallery in historic Liberty Station where she teaches painting and sells original works of art and takes commissions. As a 5-year resident of Liberty Station Arts District, Lovejoy Creations Studio is a local favorite.  With the unexpected colors in her work and soulfulness in the eyes of her animals, everyone smiles and enjoys her work with each person having a personal favorite. As a self-representing artist Lovejoy has developed a core following through all the places she has lived as well as social media. This allowed her to really get to know her collectors needs as well as introduce First-time art buyers into the world of collecting art. Lovejoy is so grateful to perpetually create new work as well as complete the many commissions, she receives each year.
