Zoe Oakley Member Since February 2015 Artist Statement I have always had a passion for Art, both in observing other works and creating my own. It is a natural desire to be understood in my own special zone and making something from the core of me that can serve with our growth and honor our essence. I work in a variety of styles and media depending on my mood. Some more abstract and akin with the subconscious, some more defined in conveying the sublime forms that mostly are the liberating expressions of the human spirit. My Works of art depend on the awareness being awakened during its inception, as several levels of consciousness develops at different stages in our lives and with such we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. My work here mainly reflects our inner urge to strive for more of who we really are.
