Artist Statement and Bio

reekatrak1@gmail.com • reehallkatrak.com 

As an abstract artist, my work is an expression of thoughts and feelings rather than what I see. It comes from an internal space — more from the heart than the mind. The process starts in a very spontaneous manner, progresses in a more considered way and finally resolves at the moment the work "sings". This could happen very quickly or it might take weeks.
