This year she will continue to show her work at Dimmitt Contemporary Art, Gregg Irby, and most recently Liz Lidgett in Des Moines.

"A sense of chaos, a sense of constant changing tides that pulls into a whirlwind of ambitious ideation. In contrast, the need to organize and control overwhelms these ever changing tides. My art reveals these contrasting emotions in their sporadic color and organic form with grid like or centered circle composition. Long story short – chaos – organized.” - Logan Ledford
