I attribute my life as an artist to my daughter. When I was pregnant, I often felt this strong burning desire to be creative and work with my hands. There was some kind of organic correlation between my body being in the state of creation and my heart urging my hands to do the same.
There is nothing more satisfying than to observe those who view my work and experience an emotional reaction. Each person has their own take on the art and more often than not, they have given me a perspective that I hadn't noticed before.
Each time I pick up the brush, it's an exercise in letting go of control, judgment and perfection - a practice that also serves me greatly as a mother."
I am most drawn to the forgiving qualities of acrylic paint and the loose nature of abstract art. My work is an exploration of intuitive painting; not having the final outcome in mind from the start. The canvas leads and tells its own story. I, the artist, am merely a vehicle for the application.
Now more than ever we are spending more time in our homes. I see a need for individuals to make their homes an expression of themselves that reflects their individuality. Working together with an artist to create a piece of original art is valued more than ever. Times are changing and more people understand the value of the work of the artist's craft. An original work of art is a piece of their soul, countless hours of practice, drive and passion that is brought into the home rather than a mass-produced cookie cutter box set that rolls off of a printing press.
I am so grateful for the support I have received during these incredibly strange and uncertain times. There is nothing more than I want to do than to be able to continue to do the work that I love. Thank you for considering my art and supporting local artists and small businesses.
