"Her art is expressive and reflective with playful colors that seem to defy the urban ciaos. The movement of line and shape seem to create movement within the canvas itself with flowing imagery. The artist’s works display a depth of darkness, but her unique sense of color resonates a playful beauty."
Co-Founder & Director for The Metroprenuer & Columbus Underground
The paintings are a mix of urban and nature inspired works. Painted in multiple layers, starting broad and ending with more detailed impressions. Brushstrokes are applied thick and loose, with emotion and intent. The application of the brushstrokes, intended to convey movement within the canvas itself; with multiple layers of color to create depth and light. With a painting technique that is emotionally charged and passionate, therefore each work is a different experience.
The works depict a particular view and perception of color, developed from daily observations and studies. Challenging the eye to question what is actual being seen. Taking away the association with an object (a person or thing to which a specified action or feeling is directed), in order to see only the light, color and movement. With nature and life, there currently is and will continue to be, constant challenges and change. No one thing is ever viewed the same, it is forever changing. Light, color and movement alters in every painting, just as one painting itself evolves when viewed multiple times.
With the nature of life itself, individuals have experienced some level of pain and loss to some extent. With the growing percentage of the population battling anxiety, depression, discrimination and injustice; my intent is to give hope. With the work I seek to share the beauty that my experiences perceive, express the chaos of our environments with light and color. Hope is in the knowledge that life continues and hard times are temporary. Taking the light and color into these difficult landscapes to help overcome. My intent is to produce work that evokes calm, happiness, optimism and joy.
