With a background in art therapy, I believe in the restorative properties of making art. Painting is a therapeutic process for me, cultivating a greater sense of connection with myself, others, and the world around me. I draw inspiration from color, nature, people, a mood, a moment, a memory. The physicality of the materials plays an important role in my work. Visible brushstrokes and layers of paint are evidence of the process and history of each piece.
