ag_artist_statement : I have always been inspired by the beauty of the natural world, combined with the complex intricacies of our modern society. I first fell in love with art through charcoal drawings, using the natural, rough texture to draw the outside world. As my personal and political interests grew, so did my mediums. I started using oil and chalk pastel, oil paint, traditional printing techniques, film photography, and other mixed media to create pieces that reflected my expanding interests. Over the past couple years, I have been exploring how women are viewed and treated in society. My hope is to help create a solution by exposing the double standards and injustices that women face every day. I have always believed that art has the power to make people feel and empathize, which is ultimately what I hope to achieve.

Skilled technically in a variety of media, her preferred medium is charcoal. Reynolds’ work depicts realistic scenes and observations often taking a dynamic approach at portraiture. She regularly takes commissions for portraiture or individuals and their loved ones. The artist holds a studio degree and is inspired by movements throughout art history.
