Full Artist's statement
My work is based on the boundlessness of the natural world. I use organic shapes and bright colors to reference landscapes or qualities of nature. I am using a juxtaposition of figurative landscape with abstraction. I hope to convey a mood of awesome exuberance in these pieces. Each painting is a meditation, as I repeat shapes, the process of painting is soothing, much like being outdoors. The fleeting nature of life and death inform my work.
