My paintings and my process have evolved from my research of astronomy, natural history, ecology, and art history. Each painting is a chance to draw upon ethereal and surreal elements that utilize and explore repetition, geometry, texture, color and pattern. I create my paintings using a range of materials such as gouache, watercolor, ink, pencil, graphite, metallic pigments, and collage elements. I am interested in the way that visual art has allowed me to examine connections between natural history, mythology, symbolism and how they relate to one another within art and within our society.
