Artwork Dimensions: 12 x 9 in. Inner Frame Dimensions: 14 x 11 in. Exterior Frame Dimensions: 16 x 13 in. Through abstraction I explore interactions of shape and color inspired by everyday life. I walk and observe sounds, movement and changing qualities of light. Once in the studio I refer back to these moments. I cut, draw and paint marks as an attempt to make sense of time, the inevitability of change, and new possibilities. As I work, the boundary between reality and memory become intertwined. Colors, forms, and edges act as a hinge between representational and imagined conditions. I examine the interaction of color and shape, layering abstracted moments on top of one another. Forms are repeated and layered depicting levels of concealment and revealing unexpected forms. Through this process I discover and repeat patterns, working intuitively to capture the memory or feeling of a place.

For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the idea of home, both as a place and a feeling. I am curious about what the idea of home means to different people, the things we choose to hold on to, how others decorate their spaces, and how this can reflect back on our identities. For me, home exists in two places. First through significant textiles; Items like quilts that have their own history and are imprinted with meaning over years as they live with people. And second, in the landscape. The outdoors have always given me a place of escape, possibility, comfort and a deeper connection to myself within the world. In an ongoing series of work titled Thrive I am exploring connections between home & the landscape by merging fragments of plants with colors, textures & patterns reminiscent of interior fabrics and textiles. With these paintings, which I often refer to as quilted landscapes, I am trying to bring the outside in and give physical form to the feelings of these places. I am not sure if it is ever really possible to do so, but I will keep trying.
