Full Artist's statement
Do you know that moment between sleeping and being awake? My mom always calls that blurred line between consciousness and sleep 'twilight'. I loved that phrase because it seemed the perfect way to describe the sometimes emotive experience of waking up from a dream and recounting the surreal stories and mythical landscapes of memory. My artwork is a form of personal exploration into Twilight.
As a mixed media artist, this involves studying narratives - personal and otherwise- and translating them using color and form into paintings, assemblages, and collages. This meditative practice has led me to explore a wide range of subjects using a variety of mediums - from mixed media works studying memory and ancestry to simple autobiographical acrylic impressions evoked by travel or personal life events.
