The goal of my work is to create a place where the mind can rest.
My imagery arises from observations of the physical world, and a conscious effort to slow down as I move through it.
My current inspiration comes from time spent traveling throughout National Parks and Public Lands in the west, with my husband and two boys. It's about preserving a moment in time and capturing the feeling of being in these awe-inspiring parks that have been created so thoughtfully.
I work every morning in natural light, using mongoose brushes to apply thin glazes of color. Working with traditional walnut oil painting medium, I blend these layers of color into soft transitions. By blurring the details of the places I’ve observed, I evoke unspecified yet familiar environments. Ultimately a single point of focus or light emerges from within the paintings, creating the enveloping sense of meditative focus that characterizes my compositions.
