Mackenzie Hawley – Painter
“Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.” Amy Lovell
Remaining true to myself as a visual artist is very important to me. I resist the temptation to follow what is new, trending, or popular at the moment. This requires a dependable personal compass to navigate professional adversity at times. A dear friend and mentor told me to “Stand up straight and be who you are!” The beautiful 130-year-old farm where I live, all the natural beauty, the seasons, plants, animals, my family and friends inspire me.
