"I am deeply inspired by the LA landscape and lifestyle – from the sun-drenched plants to the bustling network of intertwining urban roads and intersections.Creating multi-layered artworks is what I enjoy making, using a combination of acrylic paint and carefully selected papers, both new and antique. The papers are cut into thin strips and other geometric and organic shapes. There is a relationship between these coexisting elements reflected in the juxtaposition of dense, geometric paper forms and the free, expressive and rhythmic lines that dance across the canvas, resulting in a complex universe of balance, texture, color and vibrant rhythms, emulating their coexistence in the urban landscape." - Maura Segal
