The paintings I have been creating for the past six years focus on themes of peacefulness, quietness, solitude, barriers, and illumination. I am an eternal optimist in search for paths that lead me to positive change for myself and others. Boundaries, both physical and mental, are fascinating to me because I cannot help but search for the gaps that reveal connections.
After a month long trip to Mexico City in 2004 to collaborate and study with landscape architecture and art students at Luis Barragan's house and studio, I left transformed and inspired by the designed world on a physical and spiritual level. Being immersed in an environment where the boundary is blurry between where design stops and art begins left me longing for more spaces that effect your senses and transport you in positive ways.
