“Inspired by the intangibles of the universe, Chepenik combines exotic subjects, loud and complex palettes, and the very emotions of art making into vibrant and dynamic works. Chepenik’s art celebrates the making of art for art’s sake, that is, making art because you can, and you enjoy it. Chepenik emphasized this philosophy by evolving into both painter and sculptor. While her acrylic and mixed media pieces are a psychedelic and expressive splendor, her blown glass represents her intuition, control, and patience.”
