Meemi JL´ moved to Cookeville, Tenn., from Hawaii 16 years ago. When she was young, her parents emphasized that appreciating art was essential in life. Her father strongly believed that any form of art music, poetry or painting could enrich people¹s lives and enhance their world experiences. Later in life, her dad's love of art remained deep within her.
The artist chose "Meemi JL´" as a professional pseudonym in memory of her parents who are still very much alive in her heart, and who were the reasons she returned to the canvas eight years ago. Her work is represented by the Appalachian Center for Craft Gallery at Tennessee Tech University.
About Tennessee Treasure
The artist states, "I seek to capture the simple moments that inspire me by extracting the abstract visual components from the scene in nature so that the viewer sees what I see and responds with similar emotions. This exhibit, 'Tennessee Treasure,' is my interpretation of the beauty from ordinary Tennessee scenes. I hope that the viewer feels a sense of peace from a scene of a farmhouse in the woods, an old barn or cows and trees in a peaceful field."
