In Disguise

Wen Redmond talks about her work "Making my art allows me to tap into levels of myself, becoming more aware, more conscious and more grateful. I’ve loved photography my entire live. This brings a tender sensitivity to one’s surroundings. An Eye.

I hope to bring that energy into my art making to communicate the positive. When I work, I allow and encourage a collaborative process with the spirit or that mind boggling principle of the universe. Creation gives me ideas. My passion is to put them into art. My art are my prayers.”

Sometimes, I look with intention on everything with the possibility of creating a composition and sometimes it just happens. A quick glance becomes the image of a future work. These moments are my well, my source.
