Artist Statement

Through re-imagined environments and composed structures, my work explores notions of objective and subjective realities. Within the layers of geometric combinations, contrasting palettes and recurring forms are abstractions representing psychological states and our physical surroundings. Through a creative process, a visual language has emerged that drives my practice, challenging perceptions and beliefs within my internal and external environments. I strive to create without expectation, taking up creative processes that challanges and expands my present compositons. It is my goal to continue building confidence in my work, trusting the process. I seek to create work that falls into alignment with who I am, reflecting and stimulating a sence of freedom and flexibility within myself, inspiring a playful curiosity within each painting.
