This year, in 2021, I will be focusing on a "Home Series," designing paintings for our innermost adobes.
In 2020, the pandemic affected every aspect of life, testing our strength as individuals and communities. It opened up a chance for change in every way, and as difficult as that was, people started focusing more inwardly. With this shift in focus came a (perhaps) newfound desire to beautify both internal and external spaces. The impact and meaning of doing this expanded profoundly as society understood that surrounding our living spaces with beauty through art could make us healthier, it could elicit positive emotional experiences, and encourage wellness in more ways than can be articulated. My work this year will focus on this precisely -- the desire to beautify our innermost adobes -- whether they be in our minds, or our family rooms -- my new series of paintings hopes to add inspiration, beauty and opportunities for reflection in any space it inhabits.
