Carmella Loftis began painting in 2000 when her husband, fellow artist Reb Roberts, gifted her a paint set, brushes and plywood boards with instructions to, “paint some pictures.” Of the first time she picked up a brush, Lofti’s says, “I felt inspired to try, to not be afraid and just do it. I love the connection you make with yourself while painting." Her work reflects her care-free painting style, representing a broad range of subject matter, including everything from colorful flowers to ghostly, bare landscapes. Her colorful canvases often reflect her influences from Native American mythology, cake baking, her love of flowers, Egyptian mythology and more. Loftis can truly and unapologetically find inspiration in anything.
