Background, Style & Inspiration

My Background

image1

Autumn Cobeland is a painter, muralist, triathlete, and Raleigh native. She holds a degree in Fine Arts and studied art in Florence, Italy. Her prints and paintings can be seen in galleries, shops, and private collections both nationally and internationally. Autumn has created a series of paintings devoted to the Triangle Greenway System, and she donates a percentage of the proceeds from print sales to the support of local greenways.  Her studio is located in Artspace in downtown Raleigh. 

My Style

As an artist, my medium is paint. There is a term in the Japanese language “wabi sabi”  it means (roughly) a celebration and appreciation for human-made objects that have imperfections.  In our digital, computerized world, it is possible to create images to near perfection, clean lines, bright colors, and clear edges.  I am a painter, so the idea of spending hours in front of a computer to design my art is not nearly as appealing as playing with the color mixtures and placing brush to paper or canvas and developing some “wabi sabi” results. 

My Inspiration

I believe I create my best art when inspiration comes from my heart and when I paint what I know.  I know Raleigh well, having lived here most all my life, and although I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively, my love for my home is great.  As an art student, I thought a lot about what in Raleigh moves me as an artist. About 10 years ago my husband and I started training for sprint triathlons.  This led us to Raleigh’s greenway system.
