Artist Statement

 I paint abstract works that probe the dynamics of line, color, mark-making, and fluctuation of process as a derivative of how I navigate my footing as a woman and a mother in our ever-changing universe.

Reflective and present, I surrender to the dialogue of process as I begin to develop a surface and make decisions. In many of my paintings, I create fields of multi-layered congestion, which are heavily saturated, integrated sections of the canvas filled with marks, lines, directional patterns, and bold, saturated color combinations. As I paint, I make connections between discord and harmony. I use this method and the interplay of acrylic, spray paint, paint pens, and other mediums as a metaphor for the paradoxical ways life unfolds.

I find that exploring different approaches to painting widens the space for new dialogues to emerge, emulating real-life examples of what I am open to and what I refuse to see. For this reason, I work in series and consider these groupings of paintings to be unique visual abstract stories of the human experience through diverse lenses and perspectives. By informing the work with frayed notions and complexities of anxiety, misperceptions, stigmas, and patriarchal narratives, I navigate my way through the messiness, the struggle, until I reach a sense of peace and resolve within myself and the work.
