"Painting for me involves an incredible amount of building and piecing together. Building a story through layer, texture and color. And more often than not, the story is in those layers, (a lot of layers). My work is very process oriented, I am interested in how color and line can be used to create depth of space and movement, and how I can translate it to a canvas. My paintings reflect who I am and what I'm attracted to in my everyday life. From explosions of laughter to repeating patterns I find on leaves when exploring. I spend time collecting moments from my day, whether it is a quirky print on a piece of fabric or a conversation that is just asking to be recorded. Combining these elements creates a framework to which I build upon. I look foward to new opportunities and the ability to create something new every day."
