Vicki Maenza is a visual artist who is primarily a painter using mixed media , collage, photography and printmaking. Nature continues to inspire and motivate her work and to provide fodder for expression and inner pilgrimage. Coming around again , yet seeing with new eyes is the challenge that drives her passion and craft. The art gallery images represent a currated body of work that represent her current work.
Maenza has been a working artist for 25 years. A degree in art took a circuitous route to social work and a career in clinical counseling. She worked with families and children employing art therapy techniques and gained a deeper understanding of non verbal communication.
" Art is a visual poetry whether abstract or representational. The viewer responds with an interpretation that is personal and subjective. Inspiration, passion and curiousity fuel the imagination and there are seamingly endless ways to tap into ones unique creativity.
Maenza's work has been exhibited in art shows and galleries across the country.
