I create abstract paintings, sculptures, and installations that explore space and storytelling using color and movement.
I am an abstract, multidisciplinary artist based in Oklahoma City. My background is in painting and contemporary sculpture, and I often work in both mediums through installation-based work. My painting style is process driven and intuitive, often layering different mediums and marks to create playful scenes and glimpses into an imagined world. Painting to me feels like improvisation, allowing the work to flow on to the page in equal parts effortless expression and skilled refinement to develop the finished piece. Creating my own language of lines and shapes allows me to express movement, emotion, and personal stories through painting.
