I create large scale oil paintings that utilize abstraction, maximalism, and bright color pallets to explore many facets of psychology. Walking the line between abstraction and representation allows many forms to be able to exist and interact with each other. My paintings have the ability to mimic the way that mental health affects our bodies, brains, and perception. Using my research on psychology and trauma, I translate the way the brain reacts to stimuli by utilizing gesture and abstraction. My bright pallets create tension between the darker subject matter of my work, which looks at experiences of trauma.
