Dove Cochrane Contemporary Art

Artist Statement


Every work of art has its own personal story, I'm not going to talk about that here. I want to make this short and sweet, just a few words about me and why I make art. 

I am Southern California born and raised.  Whether I am using ink, watercolor, oil or acrylic, California is my muse. It's the freedom, playfulness and touch of rebellion in my art.
I create art simply because it's what I do. It makes me happy. It makes me more than what I am without art. 
My hope is to engage you in a visual conversation. I want to say hello and this is my story, not my whole story, but just enough to draw you close.  If I am successful you'll add your own ending and my art will become our story.
