‘Confetti Circus’ by Teri Dryden

We all love being an insider, getting that scoop from behind the scenes that most people aren’t privy to. On that note, this is mixed-media artist Teri Dryden talking about her creative process: “It is terrifying not knowing what a piece will look like until it ‘feels right,’ but being aware and open, taking risks, as well as struggling in the studio allows me to have a more meaningful painting experience and often reveals moments of true self discovery.” Want to know more about how an artist works? Her new colorful series “Confetti Circus” is a direct result of having to deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) depression. Dryden will be at Swanson Contemporary during the June 5 First Friday Trolley Hop.
