Artist Statement

My painting process is one of spontaneity and intuition. It begins in a familiar place; the layering of washes of color with line and loose organic forms. I make mistakes and don’t paint with a precise plan. Having worked for several years in the field of graphic design, I liken painting to my opportunity to step outside the lines, experiment and take risks.
As is the case with many artists, I am captivated by light touching and altering the form and how to translate that which is in my head, heart and hands to the canvas. Flowers are the main subject to my work, though they sometimes become abstracted and fairly unrecognizable. My compositions are created from life, memory, my photographs, or purely imaginary.
