mission statement

Gwendolyn Skaggs (IN)

"it's not about "where" you are, as much as it is about "who" you are and "what" you gather and give."

I was born to a carpenter and an artist/activist/homemaker in Indiana, right smack-dab in the middle of the middle class and white culture. I am number 7 of 8. I thought I wanted to be a draftsman. I chose to explore art. I went from Indiana to Southern California, and back to Indiana. I tried Chicago and Baltimore. I wanted extreme diversity, deep tones and rich contrast. New York is a nice fit. A good challenge. A great competitor. When I create art of any medium I trust my intuitions, I am driven by the "tug and pull" effect (both physically and metaphorically) of an artwork, whether 2d or 3d.
