About the artist
As an artist, there is desire to test outside of one’s limits while staying true to the essence of sense of self during the process. Channeling an intangible moment onto something tangible provides access to all possibilities that of which exist. Using words to describe feelings comes with limitations. Sharing myself through what I create is an authentic way to be understood. My artworks consist of having a vast amount of brilliant and bold colors along with various brush strokes coming together to form new and unexplored techniques. My intent is to create a pronounced effect that is memorable enough to leave the viewer to decipher their own feelings. By having the opportunity to share my work among this space, it will help to bring what art is intended to bring, that being connection with others. Creation is to be used to spread inspiration within others. Artworks seen here are best described as expressive abstract. Every process of my compositions are unplanned from beginning to completion. Use of medium includes but not limited to acrylic on canvas. Descriptions may be best understood when taking into consideration the conditions relative to mood, time of day/year, and inspiration of creation. Thank you for being here. I am so grateful to share my journey with you.
Some inspirational quotes created along the process:
“Be good to the universe so you can be good to yourself.”
“Do what feels right not what looks right”
“Life does not want plans”
“I knew I was happy once I made time for my soul.”
“transparency cannot be threatened”
What's Next? Art-A-Thon
On Friday, March 8, 8pm the local art and music community will join forces to raise money for living expenses for artist Ron Zakrin. Ron recently suffered a terrible accident back on November 17. Ron fell off a ladder and fell 15 feet onto his back and suffered a severe spinal cord injury leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. He received spinal surgery and continues to fight as he begins his journey through rehab and towards healing. While Ron undergoes rehabilitation, there are many expenses that he will incur. We are hoping to raise money to assist with medical and household expenses. To make his journey as comfortable as possible, he will need an open space addition with ramp and an ADA compliant bathroom. The home he will be living in is older and not ADA friendly at all. With your help we can make life comfortable for Ron and also have the room to do the things he loves most, painting wonderful art and creating music. He is in good spirits and recovering daily at home.
