I have always needed to express myself through my art, whether it was writing, dancing, jewelry design or painting, creativity was always something at which I excelled. Although I am still working towards a more abstract direction by applying my developed technique towards a variation of a familiar theme, this year, I have recreated my figurative studies into fanciful figurative landscapes representing our bond with this world that surrounds us. Everyday concepts are challenged and presented to the viewer on a more interpretive plain. I hope my artwork engages the viewer to explore within my work a new way of viewing traditional concepts.
Many of my pieces are inspired by artists of the past. Artists such as Rene Magritte, Dorothea Tanning and Alexander Calder, have inspired me to move into a more sculptural direction. Bringing my unique take on traditional themes is also something I am moving towards in my jewelry designs. Bold colors combined with the incorporation of various materials, improves the quality within the piece, making each piece unlike another.
