About the Artist
I work in watercolor, a ‘living’ medium, whose spontaneity and immediacy teaches me to let go, become present in the moment and embrace imperfections. Emotional release, intuition and expressive experimentation are important to my process. Working loosely and viscerally, I relinquish control, allowing the paint to have a life of its own as colors bleed together and slowly bloom. I am inspired by the human condition, spirituality and our intimate connection with nature. I am drawn to simple delicate details of the natural world around us; the way our outer landscape can help us make sense of our inner landscape; and the interplay between spirituality and physicality. My paintings tend to blur the lines between representation and abstraction, as I hope to capture the elusive, transcendent essence of my subjects. I believe the use of abstraction gets us closer to the way things truly are, not just how they appear. In the painting "Phenomenal," I hoped to portray the spirit and emotion of a strong, resilient Black woman. I painted loosely and expressively, allowing the paint to flow and bleed together.
