My art practice is rooted in quietness, luminosity and simple beauty. My background in spiritual psychology informs how I approach my work. Attuned to the essence behind all acts of creation, I approach the visual world from a perspective of open curiosity and wonder. My subjects are ordinary objects and materials. I believe that they conceal an inner life which I reveal through the photographic process.
I begin by photographing otherwise small, ordinary objects - giving them space to take center stage. Through the process of manipulating the effects of natural light, scale, shadow, and space, these objects are transformed into otherworldly, abstracted forms. I then layer the resulting photographs with encaustic onto panel. The texture of the encaustic is the final element that creates a diffused veil of mystery, sensuality, and elegance. The fundamental color, energy and form hidden within the objects is revealed, allowing the viewer to see beyond the ordinary.
My intention with this current body of work is to create a visual poem - a fluid, meditative, and thoughtful space for viewers to experience and interact with each piece. My work inspires a sense of calm and peaceful inspiration in contrast to the noisy, busy, and rational world where many of us spend so much of our time.
