I am an abstract visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY, where I create joyful, minimal works on paper and raw canvas through layered acrylic washes in both subtle and bold uses of color and intuitive mark-making. Poetry often appears in the titles of my paintings. I am inspired by bodies of water – from oceans to bathhouses, the power of color over your mood, and the way materials respond to each other. With a background as a designer and user researcher, I frequently think of the context and impact of my paintings while I create. I hope to evoke a sense of joy and calm reflection through my work while embracing the surprises and imperfections that emerge during my creative process. If you have questions about collecting my work, I'd love to hear from you.
