Dina Torrans

Artist Statement
Art is a way of perceiving the life that exists around us everyday. I find that in exploring my creative process my work reflects various developments in my personal mythology and continues to be my most valuable teacher. My work usually begins with an intuitive idea which I then follow and develop into a material construct. It is my love of art and communication which drives me.
