Welcome! Glad you found me! My name is Ralph Serpe and I am an artist. I create unique art that I hope you will find interesting and that will connect with you on some level.
Art has always been an integral part of my life. While most children were out playing, I was inside surrounded by a pile of broken crayons and colored pencils copying artwork, paintings and photographs I found in books.
Here is a drawing from my childhood:
I know. I was no picasso as a child, but not bad for a 7 yr old right?
I create what I am feeling. I don’t hold back. Every piece of art I produce comes from the heart. It could be an interpretation of a bible passage, a reflection of a particular mood I am in, a memory from my childhood, a photo that captivates me or something entirely new and experimental.
As an artist, what is most important to me is to consistently be truthful with myself. If that means I want to work with oil paint instead of acrylics today, then so be it. If it means I want to do a landscape instead of a portrait, then so be it. Whenever I attempt to stick with one particular style, medium or subject matter, that is when my art feels forced or fake.
For a very long time I was terrified to share my work. I was afraid of what people would think and say, that I would be judged or that they would misinterpret my art. I no longer suffer with this fearful and debilitating mindset and I hope to inspire others to follow suit.
I do other stuff too. I like to write, sing, play guitar and piano, and design websites.
Right now I am mainly focusing on my visual artwork, but when that chapter has ended a new one will open. Stay tuned and subscribe here.
That is all I have for now dear visitor. I appreciate your time and interest. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or just want to say hi, feel free to contact me here.
Thank you so much for your visit! God Bless!
