My artmaking process is a transfer and release of invisible, internal energy onto a visible, external surface. As a result, painting and drawing become meditative and therapeutic. By creating movement on the canvas, I cultivate stillness within. I am inspired by elements of nature, travel, and vintage and couture photography. I enjoy utilizing the fluidity of my materials – acrylic and ink on both paper and canvas – as I explore various processes, aesthetics and techniques. Each new work takes me on another adventure.
