    Esther Smith, is a multi-talented and versatile individual. 
    She uses a variety of mediums to create her pieces, and approaches her art in several very distinctive ways.  Let’s start with the most unusual: using Citra Solv, which is a cleaning product made from orange peels that is used to alter pages from National Geographic magazines. Once applied to selected pages, new images are created which are then interpreted by Esther into her own creation.
  • Inspiring the Artist: Shiloh Sophia - Lick the Fire
    You don’t have to trust the process.
    You just have to keep moving forward
    through the fear.
    If we had certainty,
    if we could control the outcome
    the risk wouldn’t be there
    and without the risk
    the growth does not run deep.
    And believe me, it would
    not be nearly as fun, or
    transformative. I try
    not to promise trust,
    or safety. Art is not safe
