These studies are organic, raw and unapologetic moments of play – what I believe is an essential practice for growth as an expressionist artist. They are torn out pages of my notebook upon which a childlike wonder of color lay. Stay in awe of the color and texture around you. The feeling of grass beneath your feet and flower petals between your fingers. Pink: Pink is often associated with children and unabashed playfulness. Its a color that giggles ( I swear! listen to it) and embraces wonder. “You can measure the steeple that’s close to the sky. / you can burrow to where the gold grains lie, / But a little girls wonder is very big — / too high to climb and too deep to dig.”
My work seeks to be a safe place driven by love and grace. It unpacks relationships between humanness and our natural world. I am endlessly inspired and intrigued by other art forms. My work often becomes a visual love letter, poem, a song or a prayer. The creative spirit is not limited to the single material by which it reveals itself. Poetry, painting, music and prayer are beautifully connected. My work fuses these vessels of human expression together. Saturated with faith, my work is listening to the music and poetry surrounding it. It reveals this underlying truth and gentle understanding that we are not alone.
Where I grew up has a particularly rich impact on the subject matter of my representational paintings. The lifestyle in my hometown is slower, the landscape seems to set still both time and people. In a day and age that feels like we are rushing through our days and forgetting to be present, I want to remind us of a place where “rush” doesn’t exist – there is only the fields, the farm, and the creeks. This idea of paying attention to small still moments carries into my abstract practice as well. When I’m painting, i’m listening. How are the colors interacting? what are they saying and why?
Whether sage is talking to mustard or a green leaf with an endless sky, this work is about paying attention.
