Artist Statement:
I like the experimental process and challenge of painting and working in different mediums. My WATERLINES series was inspired by the rising sea levels induced by climate change. I worked to create the feeling of water, coastlines and sky using many layers of acrylic paint. My WATERFORCE series includes the use of acrylic inks in a gestural application to express the energy of the sea. The sea, which I find both beautiful and terrifying, is a constant source of inspiration to me. I am trying to capture the essence of energy in my paintings.
