I discovered art at a young age and have devoted my life to creativity. After graduating from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2006 with a BFA in Fiber art, I moved to Denver, then Dallas and back to Denver working in the Interior Design textile industry. Fabric is my obsession and has been the focus of my art since 2002.
I've been playing with liquid acrylic paint on watercolor paper for a year and love the process. It's freeing and expressive. I feel like I'm conducting an orchestra while painting in large swaths. The colors have different levels of opacity and weave together when overlapped to create new colors, much like my fiber art.
This collection is a journey. It started from solid foundations with original purposes. They were then dismantled, rearranged, redefined, cut out, glued, stitched back together and reborn. Much like life. An odyssey of self-discovery and liberation where the past and future collide in this present space, in this new form.
This series negotiates the realms between formlessness and form; light and dark; color and greys; angles and arcs; dreams and realities; beginnings and ends. I'm putting the pieces back together to form a new reality. A new home. A place to belong.
