Kelly Naylor, Albany, NY Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement I have a secret identity as a systems programmer at a local college, but I'm really an artist ready to add a splash of color to just about anything. I paint with acrylics or watercolors or brightly colored, high quality wax. Being a geek, I'm also extraordinarily fond of fractals. All of it is abstract. None of it is boring.
I create art because I can't NOT create art. I create art to honor the short life of my daughter, Mackenzie. I create art because the world needs art, and because I need art. I create art because I can represent my emotions and thoughts with color and form. But it all boils down to the fact that I create art because I can't NOT create art.
