I paint to carve out a niche in my day with quiet space. I also take solace in spending time in nature. I have a background in music, and I’m a self-taught artist. My approach is intuitive. I jump right in, mixing and creating textures with acrylics, pencil, and watercolors. As I’m adding patterns and applying layers, I’m capturing the fleeting emotions I’m addressing, in parallel to the unexpected moments found in nature and musical patterns.
