Artist Statement

Throughout the chaos and uncertainty of the past five months, I’ve been able to spend more time in my studio than I have had in many years. All of the work presented here was made on birch wood panels . Most of the paintings have fine pumice or crushed beach charcoal added to my acrylic media. The painting entitled “Perilous” was made in response with melting oil bars shortly after the murder of George Floyd.

My paintings continue to reflect intuitive colors, organic shapes, descriptive lines, and my emotional response to my life. This recent body of work has been further influenced by the intense heat of the summer, bright flowering plants, my dream of living by the ocean, and colors of my childhood memories. Making art during this devastating pandemic, along with our country’s unprecedented upheaval has made me reflect upon the thousands of lives lost and the continued unrest. In stark contrast, I have had the good fortune and privilege to shelter in our apartment in my studio and work to make sense of it all through my paintings.
