I am interested in exploring color combinations and their emotional effects using acrylics, pastels, inks, pencil and anything that will make a beautiful mark on the canvas. My abstract landscapes take form intuitively, with contrasts of large gestures and delicate lines. They are an energetic, open conversation between myself, my colors of choice, technique and movement, the canvas and the viewer. Drawing from childhood memories of the 80's, natural surroundings and thoughts of an idyllic happy place, I aim to evoke feelings of joy - to inspire personal reflection and creativity.
