My art is, at its core, an exploration of loss: the loss of environment, the loss of loved ones, the inherited losses of womanhood. How do we live through loss and accept it as inevitable while still pushing ourselves beyond the boundaries of our comfort zones?
I delve into these questions with broad strokes and pools of color. My paintings evoke emotionality with layers of acrylic ink and organic forms, most often on raw canvas. These materials create both a depth and rawness that speak directly to feminine personhood.
I am a process-based painter and allow the materials to influence the evolution of the work. I am constantly seeking a greater interconnectedness between my own life and that of the world around me, attempting to understand how loss is an integral part of that journey.
