About my work
My paintings are colorful and richly detailed with subjects that I find from observing nature. I enjoy studying unique textures and repeating patterns I find in both the macro and micro worlds. I take these observations and combine them together with sacred geometry to create visionary works of art with the goal of portraying how everything in our world is interconnected.
I primarily work with oil paints on canvas. My color palette is non-traditional and highly saturated. At times I like to experiment with mixed media and am constantly evolving my techniques.
My love of creating began early on, and at the age of 10 my great aunt gave me my first painting lessons. I was lucky to be surrounded by teachers and family members who were always encouraging.
I have always found beauty in the small details in the world around me. Such as the complex textures in tree bark or the colorful patterns in bird feathers and insect wings. In college where I took on a double major in studio art and psychology I found this same beauty in the branches of neurons and the textures of stained cells under a microscope. What I found, over and over again, was patterns within patterns, which lead to my interest in sacred geometry.
After graduation I started my career in behavioral neuroscience and have worked at Yale, UT Southwestern, UCSD, and LSU health sciences center. Though I continued to create art I wasn’t able to focus on it as much as I would have liked. Because of this, despite enjoying my career in research, I am transitioning to becoming a full time artist. It has been scary at times but also extremely fulfilling as I have experienced an explosion of creativity and have many new paintings coming to life.
