Statement

I am an artist with a passion for color and the sensory act of painting. My current body of work revolves around my experience of motherhood and trying to capture intimate moments of family life. I am putting brush to canvas and pastels to paper as an exercise to encode fleeting memories in my mind. I savor the process by intensifying colors, applying gestural brushstrokes, and enhancing their narrative through deliberate composition decisions. I am creating a record made up of snapshots of life I can go back to time and time again.
