My work is an intuitive exploration of the link between visual representations and language. Instead of practicing realism, I use line, composition and layers of bold color to form a symbolic language that expresses a real or imagined moment in time. While many of my pieces are inspired by actual moments when I felt a perfect connection with nature and time, others are inspired by my imagination. Some of my work is an expression of my childlike need to suspend reality and revel in fairy tales. My hope is that the viewer can reconnect with her innate senses and feel a raw, unanalyzed, excitement from my work.
