My work is the vehicle for self - introspection, and experiencing a connection to humanity.
The figure is my inspiration, coming from moments of connection and vulnerability during the life drawing session. Drawings are used in larger works, on the canvas and applied to hand made fabricated surfaces.
My process is intuitive, navigating feelings and memories within the process of applying the paint, making marks, sanding, and burnishing.
My background in ceramics, sculpture, and mono-printing creates a foundation for my work using collage, mixed media, and painting.
The work focuses on the moment, the reductive, connection, and vulnerable aspects of the human condition.
The combination of materials, the figure, evolving into abstraction, and a thirst for deeper introspection, experiencing the moment which can transcend the rational mind into the magic of the creative process.
