Cissy Smith Marks

I have great respect for the natural form (human body and flowers) and enjoy manipulating them to appear just a bit “left” of real. I hope to entertain the viewer by challenging them to see typical images in a way they normally wouldn’t.

My love of brilliance, vibrancy of color and composition in regards to interplay of negative and positive space best describes the priorities in my work. I have a bold, graphic style using flat planes and minimal modeling. My background in fashion design contributes to the character of my work.
