Undesirable divide

As someone with a severe gluten intolerance, I had a hard time grasping this imperfection within my body without feeling separated from society. Most cultural gatherings revolve around food and I grew tired of watching people eat while holding some resentment towards others for enjoying what I cannot. These paintings were a way of accepting an imperfection within myself and became symbolic for ways that we sometimes limit ourselves by holding resentments against things we cannot change. 

OBSERVATIONAL SKETCHES

I don't sit down with my sketchbook as often as I would like but I do love to draw from direct observation. Drawing from life heightens my awareness, is excellent practice, and makes me more present in the moment. 

FOOD SHARING

During 2014 I became fascinated with the way in which food photos are shared on social media. These paintings were done alla prima - in one sitting, to echo the way in which we consume food - in one sitting. 

TROMPE L'OEIL

The perfectionist part of me enjoys creating trompe l'oeil watercolor paintings, specifically of discarded or seemingly insignificant objects. As I have grown in my practice as an artist, I have relinquished this method but on occasion will return to it when I find a particularly interesting object.
