Name:  Rita Budnikova

Artist Statement:  Ever had one of those days where you can't sit still and you want to explore the opportunities the world is offering? Well that's how I feel everytime I pick up my camera and a roll of film. I enjoy making art because it gives me a chance to have fun and enjoy myself in a way that only an artist can understand.
Getting ideas for an amazing art photograph, and capturing it on film is one of the best parts of being a photographer. Most of my ideas occur to me while taking a stroll in the park, or a walk on the beach. If I see a scene that really inspires me, I try my best to create an image that looks as interesting as possible.
