ARTIST STATEMENT

 

My process-based works are examples of practice as meditation and healing. My studio's white walls present themselves as a neutral ground, reassuring me of its intended provision for contemplation. Inside of this space, I explore what balance and openness can look like when handling my materials. Like any balancing act, I also take to its contrast, keeping in mind the uniqueness that comes in producing a single brush stroke or mark. Large stretched canvases and broad brushstrokes form a vernacular that use my whole body to create. As I move, I become a part of the painting, the canvas absorbing my meditative state, reflecting a nurturing balance of emotions. In an epoch of chaos, the space we use to engage in creation is sacred, and I am continually working to keep it so by expressing my innermost self against its walls.
