About My Work:

In both mediums, my work employs complex patterning, floral motifs, and the beauty of nature to evoke sentiment and promote a sense of well-being. My work is colorful and folk art inspired; it explores the relationship between delicacy and wildness, and it aspires to remind the observer of some long-forgotten magic that is still accessible to us all. It is my belief that vibrant folk art can draw upon timeless themes that rouse the spirit, reorient us with the ethos of childhood, and unburden the soul.
