"For me painting is not only a passion but a healing opportunity. I'm fascinated by the subliminal messages art provides. It is through painting that I've found the words I can't say or the feelings I can't describe in a logical format. Sometimes by spreading color and staying focused on my craft The world around me makes more sense and I can express and feel on a much deeper level. I truly believe you can heal what you can feel. We all need an outlet, an escape and moment of solitude to restore ourselves and see the world in another angle."

“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.”
