After working in oils for over 10 years, I now focus primarily on mixed media abstracts. Time spent studying in New York City rekindled my love for abstract art. As a “recovering perfectionist”, I rarely have a “plan” when I start a painting, but instead, paint intuitively and spontaneously. I find that mixing up my paintings from organic and calm to geometric and colorful lends freshness to my work. I feel an absolute compulsion to paint, knowing that I can never plumb the depths of the limitless possibilities of line, shape and color. The problem-solving nature of painting presents a continual challenge, yet paradoxically elicits in me a sense of peace and calm.
