Kelly Moeykens

"My works are driven by process, that it is only natural for me to be intrigued by the mediums I use. I am drawn to the tactile experience of it all; there is a physical aspect to interacting with my work that I want to convey with each piece. Additionally, I want to use art as a form of environmental activism and raise awareness to our biodiversity crisis. I want each individual viewer to have a unique emotional response and my work to give rise to their own memories and connections."
