The Artist Says:


"I am moved by the way the light hits the subject, the dance of colors, and the movement in the scene. I love the way I feel when I'm painting. There is nothing like it. I feel most at peace with a brush in my hand." - Courtney Salton (oil painter)




Biography


Growing up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Courtney felt most at home with a paint brush in her hand. This love of art was complemented by lessons at the Reynolda House and Sawtooth Center for Visual Arts at a young age. Her life then followed the traditional path graduating from Saint Mary’s High School and then, College of Charleston with a BS in Psychology. Shortly after college graduation, Courtney met her husband in Charlotte. Currently, her days are filled with painting at the Dilworth Artisan Station and in her home studio. She loves to travel and spend time with her husband, two daughters, and three dogs. Her talents have thrived at Braitman Studio as she loves to be surrounded by other artists! Painting is a meditation for Courtney. When in flow, it is just her, the paint, brushes, and canvas (or paper). When she gets out of groove, she switches mediums to challenge herself and reignite the creative fuel. She is constantly evolving, but her style is described as an impressionism with bold yet loose strokes that are full of texture. The viewer is engaged as they bounce their eyes around the canvas thus experiencing all aspects of the work. The forms are often suggested and inviting the viewer to look further into the the piece. Courtney continues to explore the application of paint and its beauty using contrasting and complimentary colors to evoke vibrancy and interest in her current creations.
