About The Artwork

In the heart of life's tumultuous currents, there exist moments of pure serenity, fleeting yet profound. "Self in Sapphire: Moments Captured" is a voyage into the intimate sanctum of those moments. This self-portrait, part of the 'blue moments' series, seeks to capture not just the likeness of the self, but the essence of introspection. Watercolor, with its fluidity and unpredictable nature, was the medium of choice, reflecting the ebb and flow of life's experiences. The sapphire hue, both deep and translucent, mirrors the complexity and transparency of human emotions. It speaks of vulnerability, depth, and a quiet strength. This painting is more than a reflection in a mirror; it's a reflection of time. It urges the beholder to not just see, but to feel and connect – to delve deep into one's own 'blue moments' and find resonance, understanding, and perhaps a sense of solace. In a world that often rushes past the silent pauses, "Self in Sapphire" is an invitation to linger, to ponder, and to connect with the myriad emotions that define the human experience.

I grew up a girl of the southern wild, playing and dancing in the half-light. Cicada music blared in my ears as the magical illumination of evening called a halt to each day but foreshadowed a beginning to the next. It was in this half-light that my soul took flight, that my art began, and that all I imagined danced on canvas. Shadows, lights, and colors haunt my mind….Where shadows and light intertwine, bridging the familiar with the ethereal, exists the transient spectrum of the half-light. My work celebrates the dichotomy of the tangible and the intangible, melding moments of reality with those of the imagined. Each piece is my visual poem to the changing spirit of nature and the flow of time and space. My creations echo the raw, ephemeral beauty of the natural world, intertwined with our poignant yearning for exploration and progression. I do this skillfully with a variety of mediums to capture the emotional expression of the half-light. The half-light represents the boundary of the known and the unknown, capturing fleeting moments of transition and the ever-present potential of what lies ahead. It is the thin veil between the past and the future, the real and the dream. In addition to my two current series, "Into the Southern Wild" and "Blue Moments". I delve into the world of commissions through the meaningful collaboration of skillfully expressive portraiture. Portraiture, for me, is an intimate way to connect to others by capture their unique personality’s, experiences, or emotions in a personalized and meaningful way. Generic mass-produced art might not accurately reflect an individual's identity or life story, leading for the desire of a custom piece. My clients and I appreciate art as a way to connect with the human experience on a profound level. My art is often introspective, and I value emotional depth, self-discovery, and intellectual stimulation in artistic experiences.
