Hello! I’m Hope. I’m a local painter and artist from Lambertville/New Hope. My art and lifestyle tends to reflect my gallery name: Scrambled. I am eccentric, passionate, messy, creative- and my heart and soul breathes art. You know that very “thing” that keeps you going and burning, that fire you can’t put out? That’s me. Most days you can find me dancing around town, an espresso in my hand, paintbrush in my hair, and covered in paint; ready to take on the world.
I have about 13 years experience as a painter, and the vision began with my father. I never quite had the money to go to art school, so I was self- taught. My father instilled in me that to be an artist, all you simply needed was a vision- and he often told me, “It’s your world”. (This, of course, was when I asked if I could paint the sky purple back then, but now I apply it to my everyday life and the much more important things). I grew up watching a lot of Bob Ross. Traditionally starting out as an oil painter, I have since branched out to other mediums such as acrylics and watercolors as well. Nowadays, I paint mostly in watercolor, but it depends on my mood. I do a lot of landscapes, because well, when you live in such a breathtaking place full of inspiration- well, how could you not? My father was the one as a little girl told me that being an artist was possible, when the world around me told me it wasn’t. Now, I’m here to do the same for others.
You see, Scrambled to me started as a passion project. A way to honor my dear friend and keep the show going. It started off as a “I have to keep the show going” and became a business owner overnight. But in this last year, the “I have to keep the show going ” has metamorphosed into “I NEED to keep the show going”- and this time, it’s personal. You see, I always had this vision of community in art. Once I was described as the most people- person a person can get. So, taking the two things I love most (besides dogs and coffee, that is) people and art, my vision for Scrambled became one of cultivating and curating a space for people to explore and express their most authentic selves- by being immersed in an artistic space around them.
