Creating compositions of color, some predictable and others unpredictable, with layers of acrylic ink, collage, acrylic paint, finished with oil paint. A truly contemplative and organic transformation of colors, drips, and marks captured in abstract form on canvas, that elicits create an emotional connection for someone. "I am inspired by groupings of color that catch my eye and the essence of a memory or experience, music, quote, or poem. Wakefield goes on to say "I find that the joy of painting is to watch the abstract emerge into something that evolves from the process and in the end creates an emotional connection for the viewer."
Raised in a small midwestern town in central Illinois, she would go on to graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Illinois State University. She obtained her Master of Arts in Elementary Education from University of Phoenix. Wakefield would go on to study painting at the Milan Art Institute, where she discovered her passion for color and letting the process of painting determine the outcome in abstract form.
