I am a mixed media contemporary painter, fascinated by time travel and portals. For me, painting is a means to escape linear time and ponder other dimensions. As a woman, and a feminist, I sense time passing cyclically, rather than in a straight line. When I see the visual world around me, I don’t see one moment. I see millions of moments building on one another, and falling back on one another, to create a fragile, and beautiful present.
My work is bright, abstract, and fertile. I see it as a growing and shifting universe. To start, I use grids and map like elements to mimic the way humans have moved and shifted through time. I work within the tension of a locked in structure and a sense of connectedness to something bigger than just one moment....air, space, movement, and growth. In a sense, there is a hope of renewal in my work, an ever expanding universe. I recently started working off the edge of my paintings, into the wall space and sometimes the floor. I'm very energized by this transition, and I am currently trying to find a large wall to work on, using a painting as a starting point and expanding outward, downward, and even behind the painting. I'm looking forward to where this next step takes me, and I'm really in need of a big wall, if you have one.
