Artist ( Description ): 

The first impression of Overstreet’s work reveals how her environment has influenced her color palette. Natural tones are present, evocative of seafoam, rocks, and sand in the base of the works. Abstracted prismatic gradients punctuate the work.  Reflecting the character of the artist herself, the work is curious and explorative. Her process is driven by a combination of physically active and quick gestural marks coupled with slow, meditative detail work. She uses pace, rhythm and breath to depict sensations within. Along with wide, sweeping arches and spirals, her work can also be identified by her broad strokes, transparent washes of color, web-like lines, and bursts of confetti.

Overstreet explains, “I want people to engage with the work and feel both activated and calm. I want people to live with work that intentionally creates sacred space. I want the paintings to evolve over time and the viewer to continually discover new things the longer they live with or view the work. I want the work to change the environment it lives in.”
