In the end, Ross is about the “seeing” of oneself and the knowing of ones personal energy. Her work is her on-going creative exploration and play.
“The motion of art actually creates its own physics. Visual Art in motion touches more people with a greater impact.”
Through the processes of art-making, paintings, drawings, sculpture, art-book-projects, installations, curation, design, and feng shui energy exploration, I example ways that the universal energy enters our lives. Imagery ranging from the fluid, mysterious, simplicity/depth of line, thought and form holding attention.
Two things I ponder, question and pose to you.
“What is YOUR energy telling the world?”
“Be sure to develop a pattern of creating conscious play. There is FUN to be found in everything we do…”
