New York, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: I create dynamic and vibrant paintings that are graphic fabrications of aesthetic drama that are intended to resonate a continuous cycle of human energy. They are manipulations of social influence and human emotion. I have faith in the universality of all emotion enables me to create psychological landscapes that speak directly to the viewer with absence of language. The theory responsible for the construction of my compositions is what she calls "organized chaos." The physical appearance of my work is achieved by collaborations of bright and dark colors assembled by a wide range of painting techniques. Materials I use to construct her work are: house, acrylic, tempera, oil, and latex paints on surface materials such as masonite, canvas, and foam board. Other non-traditional elements are utilized and incorporated because they are deemed necessary to the work. This process bypasses my interpretation allowing the paintings to be free from limiting criticism. This liberal thinking frees space for the paintings to develop the structure needed for what I refer to as "open for the viewers' interpretation." These interactive paintings are works of intuitive originality and complexity, which inspire contemplation and aesthetic dialogue.
