Spring 2017

For my oil paintings I used the formal elements I observed in nature this spring, the way light interacts with space and form, and the shapes and contours of the natural environment to inform my decisions in the studio and guide my choices regarding palette and composition so that each work guides the viewer to share in a moment of transcendence.

With my mixed media work, I utilize tension within the binding, mark making, the separation between the pieces, and the atmospheric layering to bring attention to the dance between the positive and negative space. This formal balance is my interpretation of the balance of survival and truly living, both the beauty and the danger working together.
