Manami Lingerfelt

Dallas, GA

Artist Statement:
My art is lyrical and mystical, and it possesses a universal appeal express through oil/acrylic paintings. The spiritual energy in me is expressed on my canvas. I feed off of that expressive energy and my artwork begins to take on organic shapes and movement.

I am physically and emotionally involved with my art. When I create art, I trust that energy that moves me where I need to go. With the use of various mediums and a strong abstract style, I strive to express positive energy, power and spirits.

Manami was born in Japan, graduating from Tokyo Musashino Art Junior College in 1985, and earned an additional BFA degree from Kennesaw Stats University in 2015. Manami began her art career in Tokyo, Japan as a graphic designer and illustrator with major magazines and newspapers. Over the years, she had the opportunity to explore the world, dwelling briefly in places such as India, Nepal, Sweden and other parts of Asia and Europe from 1987-1997. Manami now calls Dallas, Georgia home and has produced paintings inspired by the mystical aspects of the places she visited and of the natural world. Manami desires to express positive energy through her paintings. She has been featured in exhibits in both the United States and Japan.
