artist statement

Through light we find our spirituality and it is key to a peaceful  journey. I chose to use a symbol of energy to represent the greatest form of light that exists.  Joy is within us all when we see deeper than the outer shell. And although we have imperfections, the spirit within us is what gives us our perfection.



Stacia Gates was born in 1967, Monterey, California and began using her art as a therapeutic tool at a very young age. With the loss of her parents so early on Stacia chose to see the light instead of the darkness that fell around her. She attended Los Angeles Valley College from 1989-1991 studying Art History. Stacia lives in Los Angeles, Ca. with her husband of 19 years and their two sons. With great support from her family she is now pursuing her Art career.
