I graduated from MassArt with a BA in Fine Art Photography. Since then I have worked in many different medias such as photography, handpainted clothing to fiber art and painting. My current paintings come from trying to figure out how to transform my sketches into a piece of art to share with the world and sometimes are a way to translate my obsession with patterns. Most of my design ideas have a very organic or natural base, but I often try to make them a little fantastical or surreal.
Repeating patterns are a passion of mine and a consistent part of my art. I can attribute that influence in my creativity to not only my background in quilted fiber art but also to a lifelong appreciation of the indigenous art of North and South America, Polynesia along with Mehndi body art.
This portfolio is primarily my Acrylic and ink paintings. It is a zen mix of fantastical flora and patterns.
