Nina Antonakes Artist Statement
I strive to capture the beauty that exists in all things through a bold exploration of color, texture, and movement. Creating each piece is an adventure that sparks from a single idea and comes to life as I explore it with my eyes and my fingertips. I am drawn to texture, and my works often incorporate organic materials in combination with traditional mediums. I am moved by bright colors and find that experiencing them lifts my mood and immerses me into an energized space. I aim to embrace change, bestow joy, and always remember that Life is good!
