We Support Our Local Artists
My name is Haley brousseau but most folks call me Hoolie and I am a member of the template.
I’ve doodled as far back as I can remember. Mostly just pencil on paper. I loved this but I felt like there was little to be discovered between myself the pencil and paper. I bored of it and stopped creating for a couple Of years.
And then I found oil paint.
I fell in love. Buttery oil color have such life. It breaths and blends at its own accord seemingly with its own desires of creation.
When I stand at my easel, I feel less of an artist and more of a witness to what the paint is willing into life.
And thats how I paint. Haphazardly with little planning and a lot of gasps of
“oh shit, this is actually working”
It’s a mixture of exhilaration and peace.
The process is so deeply nourishing that the outcome just doesn’t matter so much.
I hope you enjoy
