Time and layers.

That’s how they’re made.

My pieces are composed of the many things that make up the moments of a life: thoughts, breaths, feelings relationships, questions... Many of my pieces are composed of an equal number of layers of watercolor, sometimes up to 50.

I feel like I walk around gobbling up the gorgeous hues and shapes of life with my eyes and when I sit down to make a work it all pours out into this lineage of paintings.

I love to watch the intersection of texture and depth of color form as I work. Depending on what a piece needs, I may also use colored pencils or inks to complete the composition. For this reason, even very small paintings may take weeks to complete. Sometimes a piece will flow more quickly.


Intuition drives my process.

Whatever media I use to create an abstract painting, each one emerges and develops it its own time and in its own form. I never work from any plans or sketches, and I have no specific goal other than to create.

You may notice symbols, lines, or tiny sketches in my work. I refer to these little whimsical marks as traps or puzzles that I set for myself. I use each of these unique elements as a talisman for further developing a work. Like following an indistinct path through the woods, I’ll try to find the best way these forms can interact.

Since I don’t start an abstract piece with an end goal, I have to rely on the art itself to inform its completion.

We love abstract art because it captures what cannot be said with words.
