Below is an artist statement I wrote for an upcoming exhibit. It perfectly captures the essence of my work but not my every day “voice.” You’ll get to know me a bit better verrrrry soon. :)
In my work, I find myself exploring a variety of colors and unique representations of a particular subject matter. My sometimes unrealistic color combinations are often inspired by a feeling or emotion, something that caught my eye, or simply a trending color palette. As a finishing touch, you will almost always find dancing lines throughout the painting to create depth, texture, or a bit of added interest to draw the viewer in close.
Creating is something I love to do and my inspiration is ever-changing. One day I’m obsessed with painting jellyfish, the next…oysters, and the next…bold, vibrant florals. I strive to constantly redefine my art and grow through exploring maker movements on social media, collaborating with other creatives, and getting involved with local organizations. For me as an artist, my definition of creative success is when someone hangs my work in their homes to compliment that perfect piece of furniture, add some vibrant color to a gallery wall, capture a memory, or simply represent something they love.
I am currently in my 8th year of teaching Art and I can honestly say that my students inspire me every. single. day. My love for sharing art with others is why I am constantly exploring new concepts and inspiration. My goal is to provide my young aspiring artists with the most relevant, engaging, and fun processes in the world of art-making.
