Artist Statement

My work investigates mundane narratives, my experience as a young woman, belongingness, space, and place connecting viewer and the material. My gestural technique transcends traditional painting canons focusing on paint as an object. Through observation, I create unexpected relationships between colors, form, and textures where painting and drawing intersect. My body serves as vehicle that pushes these orthodox boundaries and further describes the physicality and plasticity of paint. Nature permeates and informs my bold colors making reference to the day to day objects that form portraits of a cosmopolitan tropical upbringing.
