ag_artist_statement : For over 40 years, Ceelee Simpson was a successful advertising/marketing designer. The past seven years, were extremely rewarding while Ceelee owned Vivace Creative, LLC. Early in 2018, Ceelee decided to retire as she always wanted to have a painting studio. Painting helps her express who she is and how she relates to the world. Ceelee earned her Bachelor Degree in Interactive Computer Graphic Design at Platt College. She also holds a Masters in Business Administration degree from the University of Phoenix. She has a life-long goal of staying involved in the education of new designers. Through her community service efforts she hopes to continue providing relevant real world experiences for everyone from students to experienced designers. Ceelee's creative work has gone from computer to canvass. Recently she has been doing cold wax and oil and mixed media pieces on canvas. She is exploring the use of texture and color to express inspirations in her life. Drawing subject matter from personal experience, she creates abstract designs that express her bold outlook on life.
ag_biography : Ceelee Simpson is a contemporary abstract artist. She uses art as a self healing process through emotions. A self-taught Cold Wax and Oil artist. The journey using cold wax began in September 2018. Simpson loved the push and pull of the pigment against the substrate. Her passion for depth and movement of color as it embraces lines, textures, and layers of paint leads the viewer through a myriad of thoughts and emotions to a multi-faceted connection. A mutual attraction to free, fluid oil and cold wax choreographs the dance of the piece, illustrating the yin and yang of relationships bringing feelings to life into the piece. Simpson’s ultimate intention in her art is to let the viewer experience their own feelings and be captivated by her aesthetic form and shapes. You can see my newest work the ROX Art Gallery in the Aspen Grove Shopping Center, 7301 South Santa Drive in Littleton, Colorado.

Ceelee Simpson’s vibrant designs are heart-felt declarations of passionate and tender love. While she paints, she listens to blues and jazz, and whatever emotions arise from these tunes, she pours onto the canvas. Each of her paintings explore texture and color; Simpson works in the unusual medium of cold wax and oil to create her elaborate surfaces. As a result, her art allows the viewer to feel the love that she spills onto it both emotionally and physically. Each painting makes a statement about peace found through loving others and creating relationships built on compassion and understanding.
Simpson is inspired by strong women who are not afraid of expressing themselves. Her artistic journey began in 2017, when she retired from her 40-year career in advertising and marketing and decided to paint full-time. She draws influence from Lee Krasner, Frida Kahlo, Elaine de Kooning, and other artists known for wielding expressive colors and textures. Simpson is also heavily involved in community service, with which she provides experiences for designers at any level of expertise.

ag_web_statement : I express my bold outlook on life through richly-colored abstract designs that evoke memories of passionate and tender love. As I paint, whatever feeling or image appears in my mind becomes the message of the piece. Each story unfolds through an exploration of depth, color movement, and texture that lead the viewer through a myriad of thoughts and emotions to a multi-faceted connection. I apply countless layers of wax and water-soluble oils, resulting in a dynamic push-and-pull of the pigments against the substrate. The contrast between the fluid oil and cold wax choreographs a dance that illustrates the yin and yang of relationships, bringing feelings to life into each piece.
