Painting is a creative journey with yourself and the process is the focal point of each piece. I create and work with primed cotton canvas on pine wood frames for my larger works of art. I paint most of my portraits and illustrations on paper.
I see my artwork as a way of capturing the dreamy aesthetic in which I live in each day. My work is never rigidly planned out, rather, created spontaneously, which keeps it creatively free and charged with the love that is in every piece. What I see as most important in my work process is the fluidness and free flowing inspiration that transcends into each painting.
All pieces are sold as unique, original works of art.
Love of fashion is the leading inspiration, sketching from runway looks and captivating figures. The movement from those works of art transformed into something new in the process. Now the delicate movement and silhouettes of figures are captured with paint and a brush.
Cobra artist and study series have been my favorite brand to use. Oil paint is a more natural binder than some other mediums and the water mixable quality of these water soluble oils makes them a more eco-friendly paint to use. I fell in love with the fluid nature and how beautiful the brushstrokes look with oils since I started painting with them in 2018.
PAPER & CANVAS
I specialize with oil on paper, working with high quality Cobra oil colors and Tela Olio by Fabriano. The surface absorbs oils beautifully and is similar to linen canvas. The absence of acids guarantees that the paper will not change or discolor over time. I paint my larger pieces of artwork on mostly self stretched cotton canvas on pine wood stretcher bars. It is a fulfilling and inspiring process from start to finish, building something to work on with only a few materials.
