Baltimore-born Arin Mitchell has been a practicing artist for over 20 years. She studied painting at MICA and was introduced to sculpting at Coppin State University. She considers herself a figurative painter. Through the use of color and the flow of lines, she hopes to create a still but moving rhythm in her work that is also found in life. This rhythm can be musical or emotional. Mitchell works extensively on un-stretched canvas, lending a loose and flowing feel to her work.
