“I love colors, energy and light. I also enjoy the smell of fresh paint, new canvas, and the time I get to spend creating. It’s such a pleasure for me! Inspiration comes from many things—natural elements, colors and textures in nature, music, architecture, travel, people, sounds and emotions… I translate these experiences through my art and the mood that strikes me the moment I put paint onto canvas. A gravitation toward optimistic ideas and people is often transferred into my work as well. When I paint, I gain a lot of energy and feel as if I could paint throughout the entire day and night, without stopping. I am so grateful to do what I love.”–April Popko
What do I want to say with my art?
“My creations communicate energetically, highlighting colors, textures and light. I am driven to connect and inspire people to live intentionally. I aim to encourage others to celebrate every day, to find and shine light as brightly as possible, and to consciously share energy, skills, talents, ideas and gifts with the world.”—April Popko
