Artist Statement
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.
I shape 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 landscape of the Southwest and to the scapes in my mind. A work of art, for me, can feel immensely satisfying to simply “be” with; it creates its own contained world. Simultaneously, that artwork can invoke real and imagined worlds, forging spaces of possibility.
My prints originate from sections of my paintings, which I transform digitally, creating new art. They are not reproductions of my paintings, but original works of art created digitally. They are printed on aluminum, using a dye sublimation process.
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. A painting's magic usually only shines when 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.
