Biography of Artist
Drawn figures, pastel paints, fabric scraps, embroidery, and salvaged construction materials are joined together in an exploration of texture, layering, and the human form. While the color palette and the media used, such as embroidery, can be interpreted as stereotypically feminine, bold male figures infuse the paintings and challenge the gender stereotypes that the work may initially evoke.
Rather than focusing on symbolism, the work is a collection of experiences, containing remnants from various points in my life. Every aspect of the work is created based on intuition – every brushstroke, every material used, and every stitch. Fabric is leftover from a childhood activity, the paints are extra from a home-improvement project. The wood pieces are found by chance in the scrap bin in the woodshop. Each material has a history and combining them all creates a sense of nostalgia and creates a context for the work
