My latest series is about finding healing after personal loss. I draw on nature and memory to create dimensional works on paper that give physical form to abstract concepts and feelings such as hope, joy, resilience, and wonder; each layer embodies the multitude, depth, and complexity of emotions felt during the healing process. While there can be moments of sadness, I focus on the moments of peace, joy, and beauty in my work.
I am drawn to paper as it is a very understated and resilient material. It can be fragile and delicate but also strong and sturdy. I paint, cut, and arrange various shapes and colors as if I am piecing together a puzzle; each shape, line, and color is a hint, trace, and impression of nature and memory.
