Oil pastel, acrylic and graphite details on 6x8 inch paper.  Inspired by the novel series Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons-- this project imagines a alternate universe built with color folded in geometric abstraction where time is unstable.

Multiple watercolors on large canvas

(24x36 inches or larger)

This series explores compassion and empathy for the Self. Encouraging the viewer to find beauty in what IS. Each piece embraces the unexpected-- inviting the viewer to see the irregularities brought about by the pigment and canvas to show.

 

Each piece denotes a moment of artistic development and maturation of the artist's work. Based on compositions arising from meditation-- this series presents harmonious compositions in pure watercolor-- these works invite the viewer to consider that they are perfectly imperfect as the subjects and nature of the paintings. The imperfection they are, is inherently completely perfect.

In 2019 I began a journey into printmaking as a member of the Red Delicious Press co-op in Aurora, CO. Since then, I've met a supportive and meaningful community of artists to learn from.  This leap into printmaking has helped me delve further into my artistic vision. When I extend myself beyond my comfort zones, I thrive in the discomfort of the unknown. This discomfort is fear, which I face and dissolve-- relying only on the confidence and empathy I have for myself, to create my works.
