Art to Inspiration: Jill Ricci

I absolutely loved the Art to Inspiration piece this month, and am thrilled to have discovered a new, favorite artist, Jill Ricci.  

I love all the color and pattern within her work, and really enjoyed visiting her website and checking out her other pieces.  I found Ricci's explanation of her work to be so inspiring:
One of the most arresting visuals for me is an old wall layered with papers, graffiti and text - our modern hieroglyphics. I try to re-create this beauty in my work, the layers of time and decay are what interest me. I hope that the person viewing my work will linger, trying to discover hidden imagery and text and depending on their life experience, find their own meaning or interpretation.
I also love the layered and mixed media elements of her work, as they provide such interesting depth to her pieces such as Float, pictured below.
