Cathryn Jones' In-Course Honors Projects

Artist statement:

I am a ceramicist, painter, drawer, and photographer, but I don’t want to shut myself in a box. I have been told by professor and peers that I can pursue any avenue of the arts I want. I am an artist, a creative, an empath, a planner, a dreamer. I want to make others view my art and instantly feel and know those attributes. I put everything I am into my artwork so that onlookers get a sense of who I am. Every teacher, family member, and friend who has inspired me has poured into my work ethic. My artistic process is one filled with intention. Nothing is done by accident even though, at times, it may feel that way. Every mark I make on the page, every brushstroke made on the canvas has a purpose.
