I believe in the power of getting lost in nature's landscapes. There is a regenerative state that often happens when you lose yourself in contemplation in a place that looks out onto vast spaces. Through my use of color and mark making, I want to create an ever shifting portal-like experience that pulls the viewer into a visual space that inspires gazing outwards and, I hope, gazing inwards. My work stitches together dreamy landscape interpretations with aerial views and topographical references.
My goal for this work is to create and share a sense of peacefulness and calm that I find in my personal journey and make it universal. I am looking to approach a meditative silence in these drawings and paintings. I believe in the ability for art to promote compassion.
I would love to hear from you. Feel free to reach out to me about available artworks, licensing, User Experience (UX) work contracts, questions, or just to say hello.
