With a background in fine arts, graphic design and education, my work has evolved to create meaning and dialog between myself and my audience. I focus on relationships with individuals and the world that we live, asking us to consider and question the circumstances that we are presented with on a day to day basis.
I have a profound interest in color and space and how it can be used in various ways to create mood and set a tone. In the past, I would explore how color could create space by using different hues, layering different shapes over each other while working with a monochromatic palette. Over time, this theme evolved with my work as I began to work with the figure and became interested in how color could act in an expressive and suggestive manner.
Each day has brought me new ideas. While I continue down the path of an educator, I hope to find new ways to explore and create work that is both visually and conceptually engaging, and reflects the various relationships that I take part in on a day-to-day basis.
