Biography: Connie Lampen

 

My journey holding a paint brush began at the age of 17. Art opened many doors as a young woman. I am a transplanted ‘Yankee’ from a very small town in Southern Illinois. When I arrived in Memphis in the mid-60’s, I did not eat turnip greens or say you’ll. I did bring a smile and a love of art with me. Memphis has become my home! After 26 years of service, I retired from FedEx, December, 2003. Retired and excited, I decided to paint with a purpose! Spending time with a brush in my hand gives me a priceless gift. It is the gift of sharing and giving beauty and healing to others. Art is healing. I have experienced this in my life. The ‘healing of art’ came as I placed my faith within the strokes and applied layers of colors to each canvas. Asking for guidance in life is very important. My heart and hand are guided. I know as I complete each piece, the sale or donation to help others is forthcoming according to God’s will. When painting a commissioned piece or one for exhibition, the first thing I do is pray. Therefore, painting is my passion and my ministry to help others. The gift of painting allows me the privilege of painting an abstract that is filled with serenity, a portrait filled with love, and nature filled with peace and tranquility. YES, art is healing! Touching a person’s life with kindness, encouragement, caring is utmost and priceless.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

“Painting is truly my passion. My quest is to place peace in each stroke of my brush. Blending abstract with reality, I strive to place movement plus a message of tranquility & comfort within the colors of each painting. I believe art is healing in many ways. Making a connection with a person’s heart and giving hope in our ever-changing world is my goal.”
