I stand back in both amusement and amazement when I think of how early days of being reprimanded for doodling on household walls evolved into a passion for playful expression through paint over the years. A childhood spent in Kansas gave me space to explore the depths of my young mind, entering and winning my first art contests at 6 and 7 years old. But Since 2000, Long Beach, California has proudly been my home. It is here that I pocketed a few art techniques through public school classes, drew or painted when it called me on empty afternoons not spent dancing, and remained steady painting informally through college-days. Finally, in 2015 I accepted the fact that the very thing that brings me the most bliss is the ability to take a stream of thought, a stream of energy, a stream of something intangible, and manifest a visual representation of that upon a surface using COLOR.
And I have accepted that the PAINTBRUSH is simply the tooI I desire the most to do so. I invite you into my realm of Abstract Expressionism, to explore trails of my mind depicted through vibrant and bold color and movement.
