Introducing Jen Garrido
A picture's worth a thousand ... birds. And just might inspire the palette for an entire apartment. These colors are grabbing me. Any takers?

In the artist's words, "I construct my work using a delicate balance of choice and process. I begin each piece by building up chromatic layers of paint with fluid mixtures of color. As I work, I pay attention to the way the colors and forms touch and how they bleed into each other. I carve out and paint around negative shapes using a soupy mixture of white to create icing-like white areas of paint."
