abstract paintings


Artist Statement

I have been in Northern New Mexico now for 7 years. The area's vast landscapes, and mesmerizing vistas have had an enormous influence on my painting. Since coming here I decided to return to school and received my BFA in Studio Arts from Santa Fe University of Art and Design in May 2017. Since then I have served an Internship at Santa Fe Art Institute and was offered a solo show in August of 2017 which represented work from 2015 to 2017.

I work with acrylic primarily, although in my current series have incorporated charcoal, as well as ink and pastel pencil. I like working fast, so acrylic suits me. I paint on canvas, as well as masonite, handmade paper, and cotton rag paper.

I have been painting for 13 years, and have become obsessed with this creative process. I work abstract, although a strong sense of surrealism dominates my newer works. The context of my work I place within the idea of "Transformation" an unavoidable occurrence, as well as my love for nature and spirituality. Impermanence seems to be the only constant.

I hope to meet with you this year. Namaste.
