At its core, my practice is about radical wonder and hope. The intersection of materiality and formal elements of painting inform my process of making. The current body of work explores the everflowing cycles of energy, time, movement, and perception. I use my art to convey my complex wholehearted journey toward freedom.  Each piece contains a record of the process and informs the next, telling a story through vibrant color, rebellious mark marking, lines, shapes, and sweeping gestures to capture the fleeting magic of the Now.
