Artist Statement

I am drawn to painting in the abstract because it allows me to play with concepts of space and form in a more intuitive, open-ended and expressive way. My career in architecture has given me an appreciation and an understanding of how the human psyche relates and reacts to positive and negative space and objects within them. I often incorporate elements of perspective into my work to create depth and movement.

Inspired by the interplay of lines, patterns and bold geometric shapes, my work is also about emotions and feelings. I use color to evoke different moods and sensations that speak to the viewer on a deeper level. On my canvases I seek to present the viewers with images imbued with memories and meanings, as seen through the lens of my personal experiences and journey through life – inviting them to explore, to interpret and to find layers of meaning for themselves within the layers of paint.
