Interconnectedness is the essence of my art.
My work is a product of my experience within the world of information technology as well as many years of practicing meditation and mindfulness. Technology provides us the platform for a superficial connection while our true self provides connection at a deeper level. A question I explore in my work is how we balance those connections. Ultimately, my work is intended to take us on contemplative journeys allowing us to consider our connections and states of awareness.
My abstract imagery varies in style from spacious atmospheric work that hints of a landscape, to work that has more bold and defined shapes and lines. I practice drawing, painting, and photography, occasionally mixing them together. The cornerstone of my process is cultivating a state of presence. This allows me to observe and follow my instincts to better capture the feelings I am attempting to convey. Many years of ballet classes opens up the conversation for movement in my art. I deeply enjoy the physicality that's involved in the creation of my larger paintings.
My art has been presented in solo and group exhibits in North Carolina and New York. It is held in various private collections internationally. I have also developed a workshop called “Creative Revival” where I taught participants how to access inner stillness and unleash their creative energy.
