The foundation of my artistic process involves drawing dozens of small compositions on paper; the renderings that evoke emotion or nudge at a distant memory become templates for my finished work. I create hard edge abstract paintings that juxtapose Minimalism and Maximalism - many of the geometric shapes that I paint reference Minimalism, but my oversaturated palette makes my work look just as “at home” in a Maximalist setting.
I majored in Studio Art and Art History at The College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina, where the majority of my work was focused around painting and printmaking. I moved to New York in 2010, and I am inspired by the seemingly limitless marriages of form, texture, and color that I see daily. My paintings are meant to engage, amuse, and create interesting dialogue that wouldn’t have taken place had they landed anywhere other than the walls that they call home.
