Lacey Flanagan Maine
Artist in Yarmouth, Maine
Lacey Flanagan has always been passionate about art. From an early age, she knew that she wanted to be a creative professional, but she wasn't exactly sure which direction her career would go. Everywhere she went, she found herself inspired by the colors around her. Even though she was also interested in musical instruments, she really liked creating beautiful artwork with her hands. When she went through school, she took as many classes as she could, trying to figure out exactly what her passion would be. Eventually, she settled on painting.
She took classes in a variety of areas. She worked with sculptures, canvases, nature, and numerous types of paints. She was always drawn to bright, vivid colors, believing that there was something special about them. She uses these colors to try to bring out something new in everything she works with. She believed that her dedication to her creative field would bring out the best in all of her subjects. That is exactly what happened.
Ultimately, her biggest goal is to try to make people happy. She understands that there is a lot of stress in the world right now, and if someone can leave those stresses behind for even a few seconds as they look at her artwork, she believes it is worth it. She is inspired by a number of creative sights around her. Living in the wilderness of Maine, she is exposed to a lot of things that people do not see on a regular basis. She might walk down Main Street, she might take a stroll in the forest, and she might relax on the edge of the coast.
