Thank you for taking the time and interest to learn a little bit about me and my love of painting. I am currently working on a new floral series in acrylics and mixed media. I continue to explore different styles, themes, and techniques and I enjoy every day that I get to spend in my studio. I am fortunate to have a studio near Los Angeles, CA as well as a studio in Portland, Oregon and I draw great inspiration from both of these cities and surrounding areas. One of my paintings can take me a day, week, or a month to complete. Often times when I am working on a piece I get the most creative satisfaction as I am adding colors and markings and the design reveals itself as a completed piece. These moments in my studio are, for me, the crest of creating.
Painting is my peace and another avenue through which I’m able to create a connection with others. My paintings reveal much about me. Many of my pieces show my deep desire to make faint social comments through the depiction of emotions, activities, or struggles in daily life. Other works I approach with the idea of being somewhat free of restrictions as I play with the composition, color, materials and techniques. On some days I begin knowing exactly what I want to do and on others it is a surprise. Studio days bring me great joy, a sense of accomplishment and an excitement to share my work with others.
