ARTIST STATEMENT

Acey writes of her work

"Although there are recognizable images that lend themselves to land, sea and cityscapes, the real essence lies in the symbolism of each work. The images are visual diaries documenting memories, personal events and creating magical places. The works are at once real and imaginative."
The work explores line, shape and color in several media including oil, watercolor, pastel, assemblage and printmaking. Spontaneity and energy are always important elements. One is instantly invited on a journey and experiences the vast openness of the sea or the quiet, softness of a breeze.
