A R T I S T M E M B E R S Whitney Rolfe Abstract Drawing and Painting Talent, OR darcrainbow@gmail.com darcrainbow.com/art.html My artist’s hand is the most important tool I have. It directs my brush and blends my charcoal. It creates and brings my internal world into view for others to experience. Intuitively working from one mark to another, I create shapes and spaces that writhe into and out of one another. I enjoy using bright colors, simple shapes, and repeating marks to offer a unique emotional or cognitive connection with each work.
