“To me, it is about the light. I love the subtle differences as light transitions from shadows to highlights. Shadows can be used to create mystery and a little bit of the unknown; but there must be a balance when moving into the highlights. My art is the world as I see it and the world I wish for.” - Asya Baldwin
