Playing with Texture

For this collection, I began creating my artwork using acrylic paint and cut paper collage. I played with texture in these pieces by layering paint, using resist techniques and intentionally using shadows to enhance the effect created by the cut paper technique.

Staying Grounded

I’m inspired by plants because they need simple things to thrive - food, water, sun and love. I want my paintings to bring feelings of joy and the reminder to
stay rooted to the earth, even in the chaos of the world.

Capturing Beauty

I love to capture the beauty of both the plant and the vessel holding the plant because both are equally important. An empty pot is as boring as a plant in a plastic planter, but when both plant and a lovely pot are paired together, that's when the magic happens.
