My work contrasts visual elements from personal childhood experiences such as craft materials, domestic patters, and hot rod car graphics and colors with soft, delicately rendered, life-giving organic forms, making connections between the visceral, graphic, sublime, and carnal. I create spaces and forms where seemingly disparate elements and materials coexist meaningfully through constructed environments to express my fascination with the tensions between the spiritual, scientific, and material aspects of life. My paintings strive to have a visceral presence by virtue of formal aesthetics, describing a densely personal world birthed out of manufactured colors and muscle car paint jobs.
My studio practice is broken into short, opportunistic, systematic bursts. As a mother, my mental space and daily routines are constantly interrupted into wonderful fragments. Both everyday life and painting are a process of creating order, beauty, and cleanliness out of chaos and raw human emotion. As a collection of incomplete, mutated thought patterns that are organized by means of intuition, my work speaks to ideas of personal transformation, redemption, and renewal.
