My work stems from a profound appreciation of the day, particularly dawn and dusk, when the light changes and planes which were previously distinct merge. I was tortured by the lack of horizon in NYC, and everything it came to represent, mainly escape. I continue to develop the series here in Jacksonville, FL for different reasons. Here, the horizon beckons.
Where most artists primarily paint the figure or landscape, I vacillate between the two. What draws me to the figure is the ability to capture a particular moment, an essence. I am not interested in depicting the figure literally. What interests me is how the figure interacts with her surroundings. My paintings are often large with strong impasto brushstrokes, vibrant colors and patterns, depicting memories of moments frozen in time. My figurative work is bold and energetic while my landscapes are evocative and subtle
I create figurative collage works with strong impasto brushstrokes, vibrant colors and patterns, depicting memories of moments frozen in time.
I received my Master's from Pratt Institute. I exhibited throughout New York City, New England, Northeast Florida, and Santiago, Chile.
