Quarantine Creations with @cocoshalom
We are so excited to introduce you to Chloe Purpero Johnson, an incredible young painter from North Carolina as artist #2 in our ongoing series.
"I spend the working hours of my day alone. My studio is my cocoon. My alone time is beyond meditative. When I paint, I am guaranteed to completely lose track of time as my mind gets helplessly lost in the most freeing way.
Due to the nature of my work, my day to day hasn’t taken new shape in any drastic way since quarantine. My husband (Gabriel) and I go on a miles-long walk everyday, mindful to listen to the birds and smell the flowers. I feel like these walks have kept us sane. If at all possible, I’d say the stay at home order fell on the perfect season.
Everything around us is blooming and becoming more colorful, which is something I am most sensitive to when I paint. I have admittedly been self conscious in the past with the colors I use, comparing myself to artists who prefer a more neutral palette. I finally learned to embrace my adoration for vivacious colors and feel less restricted and more liberated because of it!"
