When Fall Promises New Beginnings

When Fall Promises New Beginnings

I disappeared for the summer and had so many opportunities to be with the people I love, to think and to create. What more can I ask for than time to be in the moment doing the things I love to do - being with my family and making art. Fall is here and it’s a time for transitions.

Do you ever wonder what the inside of your brain looks like? I wanted to make a painting that would be an exploration and interpretation of my feelings inside my head as colors. This how The Wild Things came to be.

Behind the Work: The Travelers Series

Behind the Work: The Travelers Series

The Travelers is an ongoing series of vibrantly colorful paintings created using multiple layers of oil paint and inspired by my archive of photographs. In The Travelers I’m working to create art that evokes the passage of time as it is - fluid and transitory. By looking back at my archive of photography work, I can look to the future and imagine where it might go.

On Seeing Nature in Black and White

On Seeing Nature in Black and White

My obsession with photography started with my love of black and white film.  Since I was very little I used to imagine scenes in shades of gray and when I started painting I would often sketch my paper or my canvas using charcoal and then feel reluctant to paint them with my colors. I pretty much live for color nowadays and I love to bring my images to life in that way, but it's true what they say about never forgetting your first love. I've been exploring and studying tones and contrasts for years but lately I'm feeling so energized and inspired by the patterns and textures that I'm finding in nature.
