"My goal as an artist is always to evoke an emotional reaction within my viewer. My work is intimate by design, invoking the individual to allow themselves to take a break from the clutter of everyday life and feel. Success is when my viewer cannot describe their emotions easily, when I have evoked something beyond words. Color, movement, and my own emotions are my three greatest tools in this aim, regardless of media." - Sayde Mayes
