I am an artist (painter and illustrator) from Maryland, currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY. I have always loved being creative and enjoying painting, drawing and design in my spare time. My work is fun, vibrant and full of memories of my favorite people and travels around the world.
A few of my favorite things:
- Travel: especially Spain (the food, the culture, the language, the people, the soccer, the literature, the wine!)
- Art, drawing, doodling, experimenting, painting, (making a mess!) and teaching my little girl to enjoy the process of being creative
- Adventures: this is our family code for anything that can be made fun…aka ANYTHING.
My artist’s statement:
My works reflect an attitude of experimentation, analysis of the elements of accident, and a curiosity regarding the beauty created by the transparency and overlapping of ideas. Washes in the paintings, elements of spontaneity and use of collage are fundamental in many of my works. Inspiration for all of my artwork comes from waterscapes, sunsets, bright colors in nature, and the silhouettes created by extreme light or darkness. Much of my work has been derived from experiences living in Spain, travels in the Caribbean and in Europe, and growing up on the east coast of the US.
