Welcome to Ellen Keagy Henke’s Profile .. I feel creating is my way of communicating, a releasing of my emotions through paintings, or whatever medium it is I am using, I feel a ‘need’ to paint to express myself in this way. For me this comes from a great need to do the working’s of it, the creating of it, to put onto paper what my soul sees, what and how I can make my marks, in whatever way moves me, to share my experience of feeling it. I’ve called my art Heartfelt Art as it seems to apply to my core being. I know I paint out of a need to express my feelings and emotions, and hopefully make a connection with the viewer, and I hope my sensitivities comes through to others, but more importantly I just need to express myself in this way for me.
