How do you find inspiration?
Nanette Fluhr: As an artist I find myself constantly inspired. I love observing and conversing with people; I am fascinated by their stories and am inspired by their beauty — the way color and light illuminate the forms on their faces. Nature also inspires me. I walk almost every morning and love hearing the birds, seeing the clouds and trees and feeling the warm breeze on my face. I delight in the rhythm and light that pull me into the moment. Beautiful art, especially that of the old masters, is always an inspiration. Beauty is everywhere and it cultivates my creativity.
What is the best thing about being an artist?
Nanette Fluhr: Being an artist enables me to see subtlety and beauty in the world, to capture and portray my vision, to have an idea and bring it to life. I am grateful to be able to tell someone’s story that will be part of their legacy for future generations. It is a joy to create a timeless work of art that captures an individual’s true essence. I feel fortunate that I am able to follow my passion and do what I love.
