I create to translate my experiences in nature, using my media to tell stories of interaction. With loose graphite sketches, ink washes, and strands of thread, I construct abstractions reminiscent of landscapes.
Painting and drawing simultaneously, I work in fluid gestures to create a dialogue amongst layered marks. My interest in the materiality of thread roots back to my mother teaching me to sew at a young age. Today I use this delicate yet strong material to compose a balance of controlled and organic movement. Slipping thread between my fingers, each strand is meticulously placed, establishing linework informed by the drawing and painting beneath.
My paintings map movement and explore a finely tuned balance. Acting as conversations, they tell the story of a feeling, a moment and a place.
Drive north on Main St (passing the Soda Shop),
and make a right on E Hillcrest Dr. The studio is
located in a former church building on the left side
of the street. Make a left turn after the church
onto McDonald St and park in the spacious lot
behind the church.
