Artist, Misty Lemons (that's me!) standing next to my llama painted rock and blue ribbon at the State Fair of Texas - 2019

 

Hi! My name is Misty Lemons! Misty Blue is my nickname! I'm an award winning artist from Texas. I am a domestic abuse survivor, thyroid cancer survivor, and I also suffer from chronic illnesses, which include arthritis and macular degeneration. I was diagnosed two plus years ago with M.D. and was told I'd lose my sight in ten years time, so it's important to me to create as much as I can now, should that ever happen. My art is my escape from the stress, pain, and anxiety I have as a result of my illnesses and trauma. Despite being chronically ill, I am able to continue to create and be productive. I've been creating art for as long as I can remember. From the moment I could hold a crayon to now! When I create something, it's like creating my very own world! A world full of beautiful colors, joy, whimsy, and absolute freedom and peace! The world can be a harsh, traumatic place, so my work is meant to transport me away from that and I hope it touches your heart and transports you too!

My mediums of choice are acrylic paint, digital illustration, and photography. I've painted on rocks, rainbarrels, canvas, wood, and more. I love painting on challenging objects! And though, I've drawn on paper for as long as I can remember, I started drawing digitally on my old iPhone with just my finger several years ago and have since graduated to an iPad with pencil. The bigger screen is so much easier on my eyes!

My work has been shown in exhibitions with other artists, as well as stand alone exhibits. I created and curated a collaborative project and exhibition early/mid 2020 also. I called it the "Artists Give Love" Project/Exhibition. (My piece, "Give Love", is pictured on my Portfolio page.) I worked with six other artists to create pieces that reflected hope and love during what was an extremely trying time at the start of the pandemic. We also created videos to accompany our work and encouraged others to join us virtually on social media to amplify our message of love and hope. The goal was to give artists something productive and meaningful to do and to promote love, hope, and kindness. We exhibited our pieces collectively during the Summer of 2020. 

 

My goal is to have my work licensed and sold on products globally. If you are interested in art licensing my work or art commissions, please contact me. I would love to discuss this with you further.  Email Me Here
