"I love to hike in the redwoods of California. There really is no place like California. It was in California that found my fondness for painting. I lived alone in a studio. I didn't know a lot of people and I had no cable no tv or no internet. Painting became my companion and my confidant. Painting became a way to ease my loneliness and help me crawl through the darkest tunnel of my life."
- Jordyn Perkins

“I make art as a release. I always felt more eccentric than others. I feel a sense of purpose while I am painting. I love the stress relief painting provides, and I love thinking creatively outside the box and being colorful.”
Jordyn is originally from Washington state, but moved to the Bay Area looking for a fresh start. She approaches her art in an intuitive and an unconventional manner, seeking to express feelings through her creations. She says, “my art is very abstract and lively. I want people to feel something when they see my art.”
Jordyn lives with ADHD and depression, which has created challenges in her life. Jordyn describes her acceptance into ArtLifting as one of her biggest accomplishments. She says, “I struggle every day; for me to be part of ArtLifting gives me hope!” She describes that having others appreciate her artwork “provides a sense of purpose. It means the world to me. Thank you in advance to anyone appreciating my work. I put my soul in every piece.”
