Artistís Statement

   Artistís Statement: Since I was eight years old, I have wanted to paint.  I started art classes at 13 and never stopped.   I believe each person possesses a unique response to life and that it can be expressed in many ways, one of which is Art.  My creative method is to allow whatever I feel to rise to the surface and be expressed in my artwork.  I watch the painting form and coalesce on the canvas.  Without consciously drawing and designing, I paint in a kind of a trance. What seems to have emerged is a journal through painting of my life, emotions, and experiences. For about three years, I have focused on erotic nudes pursuing their fantasies.  Whatever I do, whether itís from life or from my imagination, I want to have fun with it. I enjoy the excitement of creating art, and look forward to going wherever it leads me.  My painting is my personal adventure, my (dubious) contribution to the world and what makes my life interesting.

The Art of Jaynee Levy-Polis
by niagra

... Jaynee.... She's an unforgettable woman that has made such an impact on me that it's honestly hard to even find the right words to convey what I've discovered. Her art truly captures the vitality of her spirit, the beauty that resonates with each word she speaks....

The Joyful Approach
by Jeff Alexander
"....for some artists it seems whatever ...they touch do so ...consistently and with apparent ease.  ....suddenly ...a sonnet materializes and within the moment a rhythm is born and thrives and lives on. ....Her vitality appears ceaseless....a rare piece of art that, in the first beat of the heart upon its sight, captures you deeper and more profoundly, and like good truly fine art will do, touches a place so pure and real you swear your soul has been lit. ...--in that heart beat--we are companions and share in the naked moment, refreshed for being real."
