It’s the beauty within the ordinary where I find inspiration.
My artistic practice stems from a lifelong passion for art. Drawing, painting, making pottery, and paper-mâché creations from a small child and being creative in every way was highly regarded in my family. I’ve channeled my creativity into careers as an Interior Designer and Graphic Designer before committing to pursuing my visual arts practice professionally. My experiences and skills have coalesced into an energetic style that speaks to the modern human condition.
Today, my body of work consists primarily of wax pastels on paper. With a vibrancy and tactility, I bring to life my signature abstracted, geometric, and otherworldly figures. These subjects speak to my longtime inspirations across the eras of art history, from Matisse and Fernand Leger, to Keith Haring, and Reg Mombassa.
I take from my own experiences, contemporary issues and events, and an introspective look at what it means to be human to formulate my compositions. Each piece becomes an investigation. I dissect the dichotomies of life; the joy and the pain, the fear and the wonder, the loves and the losses. Through elements of the natural environment, I reveal the magic that surrounds us, uplifting us to overcome our obstacles and illuminating a unique perspective on our world today.
Through my art I impart a message of hope, acceptance, and freedom to my viewers. Entranced in the kaleidoscopic worlds I create, are messages of empowerment, tales of grief, longing and sentiments of nostalgia. These stories expose a familiarity within that resonate with a collective human experience and suggest that through the trials and tribulations of life, we learn more about what it means to be human and enjoy a deeper understanding of ourselves.
