Mixed media paintings from early 2020-present
Childlike whimsy, fun colors and repetitive patterns characterize my work. I use organic, non-representational forms as the vessels for colors that make me feel like everything is going to be okay. Embracing pleasure is an act of rebellion in a world that is constantly trying to punish us for it. I typically focus on the process itself as entering a “flow state,” as defined by theorist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, is crucial to my practice. I often incorporate elements of traditional craft, like sewing and textiles, to harken back to decoration for decorations sake as explored in the Pattern & Decoration Movement of the 1970’s. Ultimately, I make work because it brings me joy and my goal is that it brings visual pleasure to others.
