Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Charcoal, Graphite on Canvas.

My aim is to create abstract paintings that are contemplative and evocative. The organic quality of my textured marks lends an ephemeral feeling, images imply fluidity. This “unfinished” surface represents an unfolding of possibility. I use the transparent stains and the opaqueness of color. I explore gestural marks and subtle forms through abstraction. Layers are integral to my imagery and process. I employ underpainting, graphite lines, and subtractive techniques. My work examines the theme of transformation.

My paintings are representative of my path, which is inspired by adventure and independence, and my love of color and texture. For me travel is a major catalyst for my evolving themes and artistic practice. I am exploring spontaneous, gestural marks and subtle female forms through abstraction. In all my works color and shape are both organic and intuitive and feminine.
