Encouraged by my parents and grandfather, a painter, I began oil painting lessons at age eight and have been making art ever since. A native of Tucson, Arizona, I have exhibited artwork in the U.S. and internationally, including at the Tucson International Airport, Roche Diagnostics, galleries and group shows in Dallas, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Tucson and Mumbai, solo shows in Tucson and Mumbai, and was a selected artist for the 2019 Governor's Arts Awards. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Human Biology with a minor in Art History from Stanford University and an Integrative Health Coaching certification from Duke Integrative Medicine. Since 2008, I divide my time between Tucson, Arizona and Mumbai, India.
I grew up immersed in Southern Arizona's beautiful Sonoran Desert landscape. The influence of that desert's color and vastness, combined with my early travels around the world, helped me understand that I innately visualize my surroundings, natural or man-made, in terms of shapes, colors and compositions.
Exploring materiality in service of beauty, I configure multiple layers of textures, vivid colors, and iridescent materials into abstract paintings that are at once ethereal and earthy, expressing my visceral connection to the landscapes of the Southwest and to the scapes in my mind. My prints originate from sections of my paintings that I digitally transform. They are not reproductions of my paintings, but original works of art created digitally.
My creative process is an antidote to my tendency to overthink almost everything, as the act of making forces me to be present, favoring what feels right in that instant, instead of insisting on preconceived images and ideas. I follow “mistakes” and “tangents,” using them to navigate the unknown territory of a work in progress. When I play with materials and trust the process, beauty coalesces from the layers of media.
A work of art, for me, can feel immensely satisfying to simply “be” with; it creates its own contained world. Simultaneously, that artwork can evoke real and imagined worlds, forging spaces of possibility.
