C. Love Studio . . . . . . . . . .

Welcome to my online portfolio . . . . . . . . . 

Please pardon the state of things, I'm still constructing this site.....Not all of my images have been placed here yet....thank you for being patient.

Within these pages, I hope you will find my originals to be fascinating and take the time to read the writings and descriptions. I warn you: I use as many words as I can to say something that could easily have been said in five. I love words and visual communion with others.
These pages contain my fine art pieces: a series titled "The Clowns of God"; my start of an Angel series titled "A League of Angels", some being light and others very dark, but none are standard....There will also be several miscellaneous categories.
I am including a graphic arts section, showcasing the logos and designs I have created for clients over a 30 year span, my photography, random creations, and rants and poems; adding more images in an ongoing process.
Welcome to my world, it is a mixture of the classic and bizarre, making a sweep away from what most would call normal or comfortable....and yet you may find that you 'fit in' perfectly!

C. Love seems to be as hard to put a finger on as her works of art. Private, "fringe" and reclusive, one would expect her to be a person who is socially uneasy. Nothing of the sort. She is relaxed & confident about her work. She translates or intuits ideas that are 'given' to her into captivating and beautiful images. She views herself as more of a messenger than an artist, using philosophical concepts and emotion as the motives for her subjects, bridging a gap with modern yet classic work, reaching through the eyes to touch the heart. Her paintings are curious, sometimes humorous, and cause the viewer to sometimes stop, mid-stride, to take a second look."

"I 'receive' my images as though I am getting a download from the creative current that flows around all of us.
It happens when I am in conversation, or reading/studying....or meditating.
I am 'given' the image first, in full color and with most of the details, then, I receive the canvas dimensions and lastly, the title. If I record the title somewhere, I will remember the image indefinitely.
With writing, it is 'right now..wherever I am', or I lose it. I've written on walls, my wrist and paper bags just to get it recorded....
Some ideas/concepts are like bugs that fly away and come back later to plague me, buzzing around my head, inside and out until I pay attention. Once acknowledged, they are like the hounds of Hell, nipping at my heals."
