  • I see a beautiful tension between spontaneity and planning, between randomness and intricacy.

    — Susan

  • It can look like ordinary work to people, but if you accept it's beauty, it's true form, you will find a story... It's story. For one it may look as trash, for another treasure, abstract work is an opening to your mind's eye.

    — Natalia

  • Klimt & Shakespeare

    — Don

    Klimt - exactly.

  • I see our struggle to make use of what surrounds us. I see flexibility, optimism, & acceptance in these pieces.

    — Rich

  • Like others, I see connections to tapestries and textiles, in how the media are manipulated and displayed, as well as some of the visual and color vocabularies.
