Caren J. Gafni - Artist 

ARTIST STATEMENT

Art to me is not just a vehicle for beauty, but also fills me with a sense of excitement and wonder when I discover new and challenging possibilities. As a painter, ceramicist, crocheter, and table maker, I have been interested in art since an early age. I grew up watching my grandmother crochet doilies. My mother wrote poetry and my father was a furniture designer. Yet I discovered the artist in myself mid-life.

I am drawn towards learning new techniques as well as using a wide variety of art media. After extensive travel and experimentation, I have grown to appreciate and learn diverse art styles and perspectives. I have developed a strong passion for painting, particularly in watercolor and acrylics. I love to travel and explore the world through art- whether it be through seeing the art of other cultures or experimenting with new techniques on my own.
