Artist Statement

Approaching a brand new process in a time of constraints brought a sense of purpose, peace and connection as access to inspiration, materials and people was limited. The mundane repetition of day-to-day life and the need to continue feeling connected pointed me to find beauty in the smallest details. Materials that arrived from packaging and delivery became items of interest. Grocery bags and old books were repurposed. Emotions were translated in color, energy of hand and meditative practice. What resulted was a collection of imperfectly hand-painted and dyed papers and collected items. These papers speak to the imbalance and impermanence of a season of uncertainty. This body of work reflects the essence of finding beauty in imperfection and the acceptance that all things work together according to His plan.
