I love ordinary things. I seek to emphasize rhythms, lines, patterns, and colours to express my connection to the everyday world around me.  My best hope is that the images stand simply on their own, and find similar connections in the viewer."www.intoxicatingcanvas.comfacebook.com/intoxicatingcanvasinstagram.com/anitta.intoxicating/
