SD Art Prize

Nominated by Ann Berchtold, Sr. Account Executive at Sixteenfifty

"There is a singular fluidity in Austens work. Her personal and painterly life intertwines through the various mediums she employs - calligraphy, painting, sculpture, and social media. The viewer gets a glimpse of a curated life filtered through form, space, line, color, texture, movement and composition. The variety of her work and the clear line of development that continues to manifest itself impress me." - Ann Berchtold
