Statement

Using acrylic ink on opaque and translucent surfaces, I create abstract paintings that describe emotional environments. Whether I am working at a small or large scale, I combine soft, watery strokes with areas of tight, obsessive line work to generate anxiety and solace within the same space. Though my work often has a biological sensibility, I am not interested in illustrating nature, but rather in describing psychological landscapes- places within ourselves where intentions, both good and bad, collide and propagate. My work investigates the troubling but reconciling experience of plowing through the deepest folds of our being, where we unearth moments of elation and despair.
