My abstract art is meant to explore our relationships between physical place, connection, belonging, and our collective personal journeys. I'm exploring color, texture, and line. I'm focusing on the interplay of "positive" and "negative" space as I reflect on my own positive and negative growth experiences from the past few years. The cracks are how the light gets in. I'm using these maps as a form of art therapy to explore living more simply while celebrating nature, color, texture, and line. This painting was made with recycled plastic gift cards as my brushes. I use these tools as a reminder of how quickly our consumer-driven society replaces nature with disposable plastic. 

I want the viewer to feel happy and playful. I want them to be in the moment and feel joy. Life is short and meant to be celebrated.
