I consider myself primarily a painter who’s first love is drawing. I draw for the love of seeing and seeing deeply looking for meaning. I look to communicate sensitively connecting my senses with imagination and insight. I look for inspiration in life that takes me by surprise. My interest is to transfer even a small part of that surprise and wonder to paper and canvas. -Karla Faith
