This body of work started in 2016 while living in Richmond, VA with the concept of creating looser pieces on a larger scale. The architect of the pieces starts with the hundreds of photos I have taken of models and flowers over the past 15 years. Cutting, assembling and piecing them together to create a blueprint for the painting.
Combining sensuous richness, historical myths and a studio filled with background sounds of shoegazing/dreampop/noise, ala’ Cocteau Twins, I’m trying to create a moment of conscious dreams & floating beauty. Devoid of any current political news or social statements, I’m simply trying to construct a beautiful image.
