Colorful, unique and original art by Mimi Becker, Ph. D.
Come into my online gallery and enjoy the show. I paint for the sheer joy of painting and with the hope that my work will elevate the viewer to a higher level of freedom, joy, and self-expression. My formal training is that of an abstract painter and I express myself through line, color, shape, and form. Red Bubble has provided an outlet for my doodles to be enjoyed on cool clothing and specialty items. Please visit, and have fun shopping!
Browse through my paintings, doodles, and drawings and purchase the artwork that speaks to you and makes you happy. My artwork simply makes people “feel good….” I hope my work has the same effect on you. Contact me for details on media, pricing, and purchasing of the individual pieces.
To a great degree, I am driven by color. The mixing of colors and color relationships, in concert with line and shape, enlighten my universe, and I paint with joy and gratitude.
The source of my paintings is my imagination, which is quite vivid and fanciful. A few of the master artists who also inspire me are, Picasso, Matisse, Miro, and Gorky. Life is a challenge, and I am no stranger to the pain of living. But my paintings are filled with the higher and more beautiful values of life, i.e., color, excitement, movement, and freedom.
As a former ballet dancer my greatest hope is to make my paintings dance and to give the viewer a glimpse into this very private world, thereby, enriching his/her own universe. To accept that is quite okay to be different, to listen carefully to your inner voice and intuition, and respond to these callings. It is one concept to understand life, it is quite another to have the strength to follow through with your convictions. I believe that painting demands this of artists and artists have a responsibility to teach his/her own truth to the world. To educate.
