“Abstract art wasn't something I ever intended to do; in fact, I had never picked up a paint brush prior to 2017.
I have always had such admiration for the way a beautiful piece of art can give life to a space. I especially love mixing styles, and am always in awe of how a contemporary piece can turn a traditional room on its head.
I started painting in the guest studio above my garage- partly as a quick escape from the day-to-day grind, but also as a therapeutic release. This soon turned into a full-fledged passion and I have been painting and refining my style since.
I love the quiet nature of painting and rarely even listen to music while I'm working. I mostly rely on my imagination and the thoughts in my head to help lead the brush where it needs to go.
I find inspiration for my work in my every day life: reading design blogs, drawing on memories from nature, or more simply- from tuning in to raw emotions and feelings.
I am so grateful to be able to share this journey with you, and I hope to share many more works with you soon."
