Location(s): 
Medium: Mixed Media

Booth #: GN55

Artist bio: I have learned so much about myself, and the world around me, throughout this journey. I have learned that people have an affinity towards symmetry, and especially symmetrical repeating patterns, and that they induce feelings of tranquility and peace. It has made me more aware of the presence of symmetry and pattern in nature, and how it plays a large part in many religions and cultures.


Artist Statement: I manipulate my own original photos of iconic buildings & landmarks to create kaleidoscopic designs. Printed on photo paper & hand cut with scissors. Pieces are assembled with foam between the layers to create a dimensional kaleidoscopic representation of the original photo. Framed in shadow boxes.
