My most recent group of paintings and large-scale drawings are based on original collages and poems. By combing a variety of media, including spray paint, oil pastels, and pastels, I work to convey a sense of movement and transparency to mimic the chaotic flood of information and emotions that inhabit our everyday lives. I am inspired by light, the unique shapes and shadows it creates, and the inherent spirituality of the natural world.
