I am an experiential artist. While my work is inspired by color in nature, it’s the process of painting that drives me. Exploration and experimentation are as essential to each piece as the composition. I work quickly and use various media with few rules, goals or predictions. I try to let the struggle of discovery push my work adding and subtracting, creating form and marks to convey emotion. My abstract, predominantly floral images probe the concepts of femininity, beauty strength, joy and despair.
