My art is like meditation. It's my touchstone back to the center. My practice helps me reconnect to myself over and over again.
I create art through deliberate exploration. My art examines the deep connections that happen through creation, and the process of creating art has saved me so many times in my life. Art-making has been a lifeline through emotional and physical pain. Deepening my practice has helped me get to know and explore myself more profoundly than anything else I've ever known.
My collages and paintings emphasize colorful, imperfect layers symbolic of the human experience. Creating art brings peace and offers me a place to convey the beauty of life’s rich and layered complexity. My work gives considered attention to the organic process of creating. Over time, I develop rich, colorful layers full of history, revealing work that acknowledges imperfection's beauty.
