My name is Mary Peng, a junior at the University of Virginia. I love art and design and love the idea of “combination”, creating out of creation. I define myself as a simple IDEAist, and art is the medium through which my intangible thoughts and sentiments find their most free and uninhibited expression. Some of them are heavy, some light, some random, some romanticist. Art is the rhetoric of my salvation and survival, the rhetoric of my passion and dream.
