Kasmik Zenter, atlanta, ga Member Since November 2009 Artist Statement Kasmik Zenter is a multitalented artist, teacher, healer, musician, and writer, specializing in wholistic therapies. Since childhood, she has been fascinated with dreams, fantasy, colors, and music. Her imagination and intuition have always provided a safe haven away from the trappings of an ordinary life. Inspired by the artistic talents of Claude Monet, Salvador Dali, Georgia O’Keefe, and James Christensen (to name a few), she began her art career in the beauty salon by painting intricately colorful designs on her clients nails. Years later, she moved on to a larger canvas and taught herself the basics of acrylic painting. Guided by her intuition, Zenter began to develop a free form technique of painting, similar to automatic writing, when creating most of her images and illustrations. Seeking to make the best use of her gifts and talents, the author has arranged an ensemble of her experience in her first book, Going Goddess.
