About me

My photo
As a young child I had a 70s style Technicolor patchwork quilt. This was my “nap” quilt in preschool but unfortunately its vibrant colors and wild patterns were so distracting I would spend the whole of naptime looking at all the shapes and colors and trying to make some sort of sense of it all. By the time naptime was over each day, I was always good and tired and ready for rest. Fast forward many years and though I no longer have a crazy quilt keeping me awake, my mind still plays this Tetris sort of game mixing and matching colors and shapes before I fall asleep each night. I imagine it is my mind’s way of clearing itself for a good night’s rest. However, the play of colors and composition are so fascinating and beautiful that I’m drawn to recreate the fluidity and feeling of these images in my waking life. My paintings in oil use abstracted organic imagery and a dynamic palette of earthy color to capture this moment between waking life and sleep.
