Painting for me is like walking on a tightrope. The rope leads towards a mysterious door that conceals a secret garden.

I haven’t always painted; in fact, I quit wanting to make art quite vehemently in my teens. It was the loss of my younger sister and the support from my two older sisters that initially pushed me to find the confidence to create again. Those whom support me inspire my creations further everyday. Recently I have been inspired by literature and history, as well as my newfound love for the theater. My works are like journal pages, a way to make my emotional processes tangible. In my art I continue to grow and change, as I do in my life. Painting drives me to live with more conviction, adventure, and balance.

I work impulsively and fast, with little caution. Works with fluid blues and dream- like colors tend to represent atonement for loss, and the excitement in finding self-actualization. My darker, rough paintings lean towards a more aggressive and vigorous approach to life changes, and the struggles of finding balance.

Though my art is deeply personal, I hope that others can find it to be relative to their own journeys in life and in their search for the humane.
