Artist Profile

Louisa Barton Duguay/ Fresh Start

Medium: Acrylic and mixed media on canvas

Description:  Connection, energy, spirit and intuition using color and objects

I work intuitively from color, objects, and shapes and my passion for nature and gardens. Our connection to all of creation and the flow of energy fascinates me. The residual effects of memory, mystery, and joy permeate my life.
