artist statement

Decisive, spontaneous, honest, calculated, spatial. These five words are used to describe my current body of work. I am focused on what happens when two unlike objects or sounds are amalgamated. The performative-like brush strokes I create are the bases to build layers of more decisive marks. With each different brush stroke, I calculate how the layers will interact. The tempo and buzz they create fuels the drive of vibrant colors, continuous mark making, and inspiration to create sounds with drums and keyboards. Using female-fronted punk music as the soundtrack while working, my work holds its own and can stand alone. I continue to be unapologetic and deliberate with my mark making.
