full life

Sometimes a moment cannot be fully enjoyed until I put it on paper. Documentation is something I have focused on and explored this summer. I have been interested in how capturing a moment, with a photo or on paper, creates a time loop. Its an illusion convincing us that we can enter into the moment… Continue reading full life

Remixed Intuitions

[Remixed Intuitions] Our days are made up of interactions between objects and individuals. Each interaction entangles us into a never ending connection with the people and things around us. The multitude of these interactions, each little instance and each large web of moments, creates who we are now and who we will become. Sometimes these… Continue reading Remixed Intuitions

Spring semester at its close

Another semester finished and only 2 more to go. I have masters programs staring me in the face and the realization that my long, delayed, journey through getting my Undergraduates degree actually has an ending. I am both amazed it is almost here, and broken hearted. I LOVE being in college. I know getting my masters… Continue reading Spring semester at its close

Sanguine Alignment 

Our individual view of a moment can be hindered by impaired sight. Whether it’s a physical handicap, atmospheric conditions, or our personal observation skills, our view will determine how we visually interpret the world compared to another individual’s insight. This could be considered a hindrance, or a luxury. I personally have the pleasure of being… Continue reading Sanguine Alignment

I have continued my focus on capturing the feelings and experience I have encountered in nature, but have narrowed it… Continue reading I hope my paintings can be an oasis

I might have stumbled into something!

It started by accident while I was getting the gesso onto a newly stretched canvas. I decided to save a few steps and add some color in with the gesso. I start out with acrylic paint, and then build up the oil paint after. The depth was wonderful and I knew right away that I… Continue reading I might have stumbled into something!

Finding direction

This semester is already flying by, and so Ive had my nose deeply buried in paint (maybe a little bit literally)! Ive been continuing in my exploration of shapes and light that I have observed from nature. I am using those to create an inspiring experience. Ive been trying to get out of my comfort… Continue reading Finding direction

I need your opinions

I have been focused on painting in a way that creates an experience for the viewer and hopefully an emotional change in that moment. My hope is to bring light and positive feelings into the viewer with the colors and brush strokes I have gathered together. I have been mimicking the shapes and colors from… Continue reading I need your opinions

Solo Show!

Its an exciting and vulnerable moment. After half a year of focus and exploration, my paintings are up and ready to be viewed (some for the very first time)! I love and dread this part of the creative process. I have taken what is in my heart, and written it in color and shape. It… Continue reading Solo Show!
