Description

Within my work, I try to combine a mixture of gentleness and serenity with a contrast of boldness and activity. I attempt to simultaneously contrast harmony and the feeling of being broken. I do this by playing with color, light and form. I want myself and others to explore their senses and witness things they may never have felt before. Nature, emotions, and the objects around me are my inspirations. I don’t necessarily want to paint how nature looks, but I want to paint how it feels. I do this by layering paint, using globs, washes and drips. These techniques help me to achieve the contrast I want in my work, while making each painting feel whole. I don’t want people to take a glance at my work and immediately understand its meaning. I want there to me more than that; a depth that goes beyond surface level and pulls the viewer in, making them truly see what is there. I love the unexpected, which is the reason why I will often add such harsh strokes to something delicate, like a flower, or use unusual colors in nature that people wouldn’t truly see in reality, but would feel. I want to explore the depth of emotions that you can feel from color, texture, pattern and nature.
