Bio: I began my
artist journey in 2004 while in my last year of college in
my home state of New York. While earning my degree in
graphic design, I started experimenting with abstract
painting, which a few years later evolved into a true
passion with floral impressionism.
Alongside painting, I also work as a freelance graphic
designer and enjoy the balance in my life of digital design
and the physical creation of my paintings. I grew up in the
Finger Lakes Region of NY and expanded my artist career in
Austin, TX, where I lived for 5 years and now I currently
reside in Canandaigua, NY with my husband David. My work can
be seen at ART on 5th Gallery in Austin, TX and also at Main
Street Arts Gallery in Clifton Springs, NY.
I enjoy bringing life to blank walls using luminescent
colors and an abundance of texture. I lay the paint on
extremely thick with sweeping knife strokes that tattoo
fluidity onto the canvas. The paint cures in a way that
makes it appear as if it's still wet, provoking a curiosity
to touch it. I create what I create because it's what I'm
passionate about. Every piece is a reflection of my personal
style that I would hang in my own home and I love sharing
that common passion with others.
paint, it is just me, my music, and my creativity outpouring
onto each blank white canvas. It is as if nothing else
exists in that moment when my palette knife hits the canvas.
I never thought my love of art would turn into an everyday
enjoyment as I have expanded into a place where I feel true
passion, with floral impressionism.
Painting inspiration: I
have always had a fascination with the new life that the
season of Spring can bring. I get excited over the bursts of
color, and fields of spring flowers covering the landscape.
This has inspired my appreciation for the way color and
texture play together on the canvas with each stroke of the
palette knife. These are the foundations of my artwork. My
paintings start with a color idea, then evolve into
compositions in which color and fluidity are the primary
subjects. To me, art is a synthesis of my personal feelings,
the subject and colors that inspire me and my materials and
techniques. I enjoy painting impressionistic florals,
cityscapes and landscapes.
