STATEMENT

For me, art is about authenticity – expressing who you are, what you experience, the ways that you are growing, and how you allow others into that space. Painting, in particular, quiets my mind and reminds me that my identity is not prescribed. One day I am a neuroscientist, and perhaps by night on that same day, I am a painter, a consultant, a dancer, a coder, a director, lover, friend, or daughter. Like all of us, I am who I say I am, momentarily, in the present –  and during these so called “renaissance woman” moments, I am still inherently the other things too. I believe that the significance of coexisting with our many “selves”, is finding and embracing our capacity for curiosity. This is where we find our genius.

My paintings experiment with textures, patterns, and rapid brush strokes, combined with fine detail. In all of my art, I express opposing and complimentary merging elements that form “moments”, identity, and snapshots of life – sometimes grounded in humour, and other times serious introspection. I think it is important to honour that space between humour and introspection. It is our superpower.

A small sample of my paintings and creative work can be found below.
