Art Statement

I strive to create art that allows the viewer to experience the vast emotions that life brings to my path in hopes that I can show other women that they are not alone on this journey. I use the natural environment surrounding me for color and texture inspiration when creating with Encaustics.  I find so much peace in creating works of art based on how the hues and chroma can relay emotions of joy, gratitude, frustration, anger, empowerment, spirituality, hope, sexuality, fear, safety, happiness, and so many more as they occur in my life every day. Colors are truly powerful and have the ability to evoke specific emotions.  I want the viewer to connect with the painting through the emotion and truly feel the color and what exactly it creates for them.
