Artist Quotes

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way- things I had no words for." -Georgia O'Keefe

"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place; from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web" -Pablo Picasso

"The emotions are sometimes so strong that I work without knowing it. The strokes come like speech." -Vincent VanGogh

"It’s all a big game of construction, some with a brush, some with a shovel, some choose a pen." -Jackson Pollack
