Sondra Hickman, Cassatt, SC Member Since March 2008 Artist Statement My art is an adventure to me. It really brings me to a place inside that is very real when the creative juices begin to flow and suddenly I am transcended to places distant, galaxies unknown, in a kindred lands of those gone before. I love the Southwest and although I dont live there, I've visited many times. There is a magical connection between me and that arid landscape, and it escapes in my art. I do all sorts of commercial graphics, but my love, my heart and soul reside in my Tribals, my Ponies, and my love of nature and Mother Earth. You will see cosmic elements in my work as well as the connection all beings share with the Planet. The sky, the wind, the Sun the Moon, all influence my art. Since our Earth is a very big part of the universe, it should be so noted that we are not the only environment in our solar system. You will most definitely see no cosmic boundaries in my Unicorn art. I hope you will embrace my art, bring it into your world, get on the back of one of the ponies and let your imagination soar.
