RIPLEY, Miss. (WTVA) - For Amberly Glover, doing abstract art is something with which she is naturally gifted.
Her art is so rich that she's at a point in her career where she is donating two of her works: one, to a yet to be named charity in Mississippi, and the other to the Memphis Chamber of Commerce.
"That will be where I donate one piece specifically, and they did see the horse drawings; that's what they would specifically like," said Glover. "[For] the north Mississippi charity, I'll do the same just because I think it's nice to give to our local state as well."
What separates Glover from other artists is that she uses a very non-traditional technique when it comes to putting together the masterpieces of art.
"Because I use a different distressing technique than what many people use, it takes a while," adds Glover. "I have to wait on the paint to dry or my certain textures to dry. I do paint on the loose canvas and I actually sew it to a crisp clean canvas -- a stretch canvas -- and that really highlights the distressed qualities of my work."
Utilizing that style is not only time consuming; it also creates different challenges.
"It's very challenging," adds Glover. "I sometimes love it and then I have to cover it up to get to the next layer, so you have to be vulnerbale when you are creating your work."
Besides donating two pieces of art, she is also hoping that her works can help inspire future artists by seeking out and exploring the realm of artistic expression.
"They really speak to me and I really love the fact that they speak to different people in every different way," added Bailey Martin, college student. "People can find such different meanings from just one piece of art but it can mean so much to everyone so yes it inspires me and it really broadens my view of life."
That's what so many artists say is necessary in order to continue creating imaginative works of art.
