Looking Back, Looking Forward 11 | Jan

Like a lot of people, this part of the year seems to be for being introspective into the past, and seeing what I can learn to inspire and support the upcoming year.
I started working with Robert Lange Studios in 2010 through the Women Painting Women show they hosted. I started my journey with them with the piece, "Blue Kimono":

As an artist, I've taken different paths that have led me in all sorts of directions, as I'm sure they will in the future. I've worked with blurry images, paintings of women, still life imagery, heavily-textured paint applications- the gamut. I enjoy the wanderings, the questions, the mistakes (I'm not even sure I believe in mistakes in art). I've been lucky to be with the Langes and have them support all of my wanderings (literally, ALL the weird directions I've gone in..) I don't forget how lucky I am.
This upcoming year, I plan to delve deeply into the magical/imaginary element that bumps into reality. I am a daydreamer, someone who can literally spend hours thinking and dreaming. I drive in my car and look at landscapes, and wonder what they would look like layered with the daydream I'm having- if my thoughts inhabited my reality. I've done this my whole life and have sort of compartmentalized it into just this "thing" I do. This year, I'm taking that stuff out of my head and putting it in paint. The people I love to paint, my muses, are going to travel. Below is a painting I did last year (sold) that sort of scratches the surface of what I mean. The ideas are endless, and I can't wait to walk this road with you!

See you soon!

changing stuff 30 | Nov

I’ve been having a ball changing the graffiti in this piece to reflective a more optimistic way of seeing the world. Painters have been hiding things in their paintings for centuries and I now know why.
