Artists Statement

”I want to create art that speaks of the love, anger, loss, personal growth and the private confusions we all experience in our lives. I seek to create stories of authenticity that compress a sense of endurance of the human spirit. Empathy is powerful, and I hope for an unguarded creativity that connects with our shared mutual humanity.”  A. Litten 2020
