This is the first exhibition in which three separate bodies of my work have been shown together. Each series unique, yet combine to manifest the experiences that make up my current stage of life journey.
Series: Collage Paintings is defined by the materials that comprise the works--acrylic paint married with papers and drawing implements from different cultures I have been influenced by along the way.
Series: Lagoon Hues is inspired by time in Iceland. More specifically, from my stay at the Blue Lagoon—a geothermal spa with striking milky blue waters set amidst vast lava fields.
Series: Square State Escape reflects a summer escapade through the Wild West, in an effort to make the best of the once unimaginable 2020 lockdown. These works are marked by a change in palette and more direct reference to landscape.
Making art is about my visions as they build layer upon layer over time. As I paint, the work takes on a life of its own. Each painting feeds off of the previous, creating a dialogue.
Once complete, the body extends that dialogue to include the viewer--playing a vital role in bringing his/ her own interpretation.
