A self-proclaimed art student for life, she approaches her work as an exploration of emotion and technique. Her paintings are often created with a palette knife and depict various interests in her life. Pryor manages to give her subjects boldness, approaching them with both passion and reflection. Greatly influenced by her studies with the late Quida Canady in the early 1990’s and her recent workshop experience with Wolf Kahn, Pryor embraces the creative process while incorporating the classical training she received at the University of Georgia. “I now tend to let the color relationships begin the dialogue,” says Pryor. “I enjoy building layers of color with a pallet knife and exploring techniques that allow the paint to have an uncontrolled life of its own.” Pryor is continually inspired by the master works of Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt and Paul Cezanne.
