The Creativity Phenomenon: Acrylic Paintings by Deborah Poe

Exhibition Website

Apr 11 2017 - Jul 2 2017

Arkansas Arts Center

Little Rock, AR

The question of how to access your creativity has been around for centuries. I became interested in this phenomenon when I was studying for my Masters Degree in Gifted Education. Gifted individuals from all walks of life, from scientists to artists, use their creative abilities. I am interested in how, as an artist, you can tap into these creative impulses while creating art. I love that feeling of total immersion in the creative zone!

Allowing myself to have free-spirited fun is essential to tapping into my creative spirit. Sometimes that means listing to music, painting in a playful atmosphere with friends and laughter, or trying new materials or colors. Surrounding myself with positive, creative people helps me to be creative. I try to express my creative spirit in each of my works. I hope the creative spirit and joy of these pieces speak to you as they have to me.
