My approach to painting, much like myself, is a hybrid between multiple techniques. Having lived on three continents by the age of 12, my work explores identity, belonging, and our shared human experience. As complex as that sounds, my work’s objective is to balance and clarify.
My painting process starts with the notions of risk and chance. Imperfections are starting points that offer me freedom to toil with paint and a shot for something new to emerge. Ambiguity, unanticipated marks, and a willingness to be surprised materialize into visual coherency and intrigue.
Coincidences are welcomed as I apply the fluidity of the ink with the thickness of the acrylic paint. A visual order is constantly shifting. The end result reveals a complex, yet intuitive symmetry, where the unexpected and the intentional coexist in a delicate balance.
