I am a visual artist and art educator living in Houston, Texas.
My work is inspired by an intuitive consciousness in nature that connects body and environment. I create abstractions that are geological, biological, and figural, most often embracing the fluid qualities of paint and the intuitive decisions that come with creating by hand.
I combine diverse organic imagery not to highlight differences but instead to call attention to these transient boundaries and deep ecological connections. My synesthesia and interest in phenomenology also inform my work. I feel a strong aesthetic connection with nature and believe that our inclinations toward the spiritual and the aesthetic are very much grounded within the context of the natural world. By bringing abstraction together with plant and animal forms, I muse upon the subjectivity of experience and intend to evoke a corporeal as well as an immaterial feeling.
