Explorations of Form and Emptiness




 Why art?

 Art is my native language and the way I have been raised to view the world. My mom was an art teacher who exposed me to the world with a lens of learning visually. I love the way art can express so many things in so many ways to so many people crossing all boundaries and limitations. It’s so universal.




What kind of artwork do you do?

My art is and exploration of feelings, moods, sensations, and thoughts that lay under the surface of my everyday experience. It’s like a way for me to visualize and process my inner experience.


What does your work aim to say?

 I’m trying to say pay attention, look closely, and see the invisible realms that influence us.

     

What motivates and inspires you?

I’m inspired by nature, the greatest artist ever! Birds, hands, cells, flowers, clouds, waterfalls, fire,  planets, stars! The magnificent work of nature is way beyond anything I could ever hope to create.

        

What process do you go through mentally when you are creating a piece?

A lot of sketching, meditating, experimenting, playing, wall staring, procrastinating, gallery visits, and walks in nature are ways that I use to get I into the mood.


What role does the artist have in society?

Maybe we are here to illuminate and appreciate the unseen and forgotten parts of ourselves and in so doing help others do the same?


How do you navigate the art world?

I used to just try to avoid the world but since becoming a parent I have been forced to realize that I am a part of a community of life that connects me to everyone and everything in a mysterious and loving way.


How has your practice changed over time?

 I used to collaborate a lot more with other artists which was a wonderful stepping stone and learning experience for me. I use the same tools and techniques that I have honed in collaboration but now I do much more solo inner work which has helped me to grow into an artist with a clearer sense of myself.

 

 What is the biggest challenge of being an artist?

  The biggest challenge is money and time.


  What is your dream project?

 I would love to do a mural project or installation for Hopscotch or Meow Wolf someday.


What superpower would you have and why?

 Being sensitive because feeling deeply gives me access to the undercurrents of life that are easily ignored in our busy lives. It’s so important especially now to pay attention to our motivations and to the subtle influences that shape our choices.


What is the biggest mistake you have made within your career to this point?

Biggest mistake is taking for granted my art community and my value as an artist.

        

How have other artists or art genres influenced your sense of aesthetics?


 This is almost impossible to know. I have been shaped and influenced by so many artists. Nature is the one artist that has had the biggest influence.


How do you know when a work is finished?

When I run out of time to work on it :)
