My name is Ciara and I make art.

 

What I love about art is the way it communicates reality. It gives a maker the ability to share an understanding of a thing beyond what we think we see, and the sometimes ordinary things we look at through art can come alive to us again as their stories are told stroke by stroke.

I want you to re-consider the subjects I paint with fresh eyes through my work. Each series is based on the things that inspire me to look beyond what I see in front of me, to acknowledge a world made more fantastic with each moment that we linger in it. We all could use a little more wonder in our lives, don't you think?
