Artist Statement

My work seeks to capture moments of spontaneity, youthfulness, and femininity. Blurry views from a car window, panoramic views with a loved one, and quiet moments alone are the most special, yet fleeting moments in our lives. Our most cherished moments are found in both the spectacular and the mundane. My paintings serve as a reminder to myself soak in every moment and to have youthful excitement towards life. 

 

Warm tones create an image of an endless summer in my oil paintings. Portraits of women in beautiful landscapes exude elegance and confidence, representing the power and multifacetedness of femininity. Blurry views from a car window depict the beauty in quiet moments, where we are left to our thoughts. Warmth and blurry excitement create an “endless summer” state of mind where every moment is enthralled with passion towards life.
