... Artist Statement
I am inspired by colors and textures in nature, especially native plants and landscapes. Working in fluid acrylics provides me with an element of spontaneity. I start painting on a wet canvas, pouring colors, letting the paint and water move and blend. I tilt the canvas to create more movement and continue to build up layers of color. Creating art this way is always an experiment. The final art usually is something completely different than what I initially had in mind. –Nancy Seiler
