My paintings are a response to daily life. Each composition explores relationships between space, line, color and form. Each canvas begins with an series of gestural drawings influenced by music, that is then translated into a series of abstract shapes. Forms intersect and overlap to create a strong ﬁgure-ground relationship. Surfaces are layered on top of each other and then erased and manipulated. As a result, each image unfurls then curls up within itself, folding and unfolding at the same time. Each painting explores what is intimate, what is on display, what is cherished and abandoned. Many of her pieces reveal pencil marks to show the artists hand, inviting the viewer to extend their gaze along the picture plane. My works are fueled by joy, Jazz, physical movement and synesthesia. The marks that lay just under the surface reveal the most intimate aspects of the self. Each title of work further unveil hints and give pause to the viewer and invites them to forget their troubles to get lost in a joyful world of color, humor and mark making.
