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 paintings as a form of art therapy to explore living more simply while celebrating nature, color, texture, and line. The title of this piece comes from a Hafiz quote (see above).

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.
