In my paintings, I often use circles, bold, saturated colors and layers of paint to create texture depicting a whimsical world beyond. I like to imagine I am peaking into somewhere familiar yet slightly different. I strive to depict what I envision may lie beyond the veil that separates us from the unknown. My sense that everything in nature is connected and contains energy is a common theme in my work. Oftentimes my subject matter will include botanicals, birds and even people to symbolize the energy that ties all living things together.
I received my Bachelor of Arts from Washington State University and later an Interior Design Degree from Bellevue College. I periodically take classes around the Seattle area to introduce myself to different types of mediums and techniques that allow me to experiment and express my visions in new ways.
