Within my oil paintings, there is an unspoken intimacy that reveals who we are at home when no one is around. Rooms tend to be a reflection of the one creating them and when people see my work, I want them to imagine the person who inhabits the space even if they are not present. In my paintings, what is hidden is revealed, allowing for the physical world and the mind to unite. Through the manipulation and slight obscurity of form, unsettling realities begin to emerge within the bright colors and patterns that feel so familiar. Patterns and light bend unnaturally creating dreamscapes that allow for the mind to wander past what we know to be true in a physical sense and into our imagination.
I recently completed my degree in studio art at The University of Texas at Austin, class of 2020.
