Artist's Statement

Ahmed Ansari

My artistic inspiration comes from nature and my own spiritual journey. After losing much of my vision to glaucoma I spend time every day walking through wooded paths near my home grateful that I am still able to witness the changing seasons. I see the dappled sunlight through the leaves of the trees and as I listen to the birdsong I hear God’s words in my head reminding me that He has created all of it. The sparkling light stays with me as I return to my studio where I integrate my experiences with the media on the canvas to create unique art that will inspire.
