In my artworks I am drawn to the idea that you can capture and share a moment of people's lives with them- places that have been visited, feelings that have been felt, dresses that have been worn, and faces that have been loved. I present them in a way that is approachable and accessible to everyone. My paintings include a wide range of subject matter. Currently I am drawn towards painting vintage dresses.I am always experimenting with new surfaces and new materials to see how they compliment each other. Watercolors are very fluid, and when the paint drips outside of the lines of the dress, it shows you that beauty is not always pretty. Charcoal evokes feelings of old time fashion illustration, adding to the effect of the past being made new.
