A strong advocate for the environment, Ariana believes that art can deepen our relationship with the natural world. “If I could, I would take each viewer along to my favorite places along the seacoast or in the mountains, to the secret places of nature.” Regarding her figurative work she says, “I especially enjoy painting figures out of doors because of the beautiful, transient effects of sunlight on the subject.”
