Artists Statement
Creating art begins with choices. Sometimes it is difficult to perceive those choices. Sometimes they require planning and at other times they are spontaneous. Learning how to "let go" is part of the process of painting. How well I can become engrossed in the act of painting and bring together valued qualities in the expression is part of what inspires me. I strive to get to that place where the motions involved in making art feel natural and free. It is a feeling of being at peace with yourself, your tools, your surroundings and the ideas that are present before you.
I am a classically trained Fine Artist applying my talents and skills to painting, graphic design, and illustration. I earned my BA in Art from San Francisco State University, where I also studied abroad for a year at l'Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze, Italy. I earned my MFA in Painting and Drawing from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. I also completed a Certificate of Accomplishment in Graphic Design from Mira Costa College. I have been creating fine art, illustrations, and designs since 2012, showing in exhibitions across California. Before that, I exhibited in Florence, Italy, and New York City. I have recently displayed work in shows sponsored by the San Diego Museum of Art Guild and the Oceanside Museum of Art. I enjoy creating abstract and plein air paintings as well as doing graphic design and illustration. I value the opportunity to create, express, and innovate that art provides.
