My artwork uses color and movement to share my personal narrative exploring humor, memories, and feelings. Ambiguous clusters of marks and colors, thin lines that draw lingering connections, and lumpy overlapping forms all collectively create associations, sensations, and feelings that inform and connect our shared experience.
Recently I’ve been using drawings and paintings as references, to then create objects and installations with the purpose of expanding the experience of abstract painting and creating an environment that can be physically explored. This area of my work allows me to experiment with materials and use the space around me as a site specific, temporary canvas.
