My acrylic paintings reflect the fact that I inhabit two worlds: (1) an intellectual-property law and environmental attorney by day and (2) an artist by night.
I begin with marks made without conscious thought. Bold colors conjure the ethereal world of dreams and the unconscious mind. Forms emerge in the ether of the paint. I use negative space to transport the viewer into the world within the painting.
My art expresses the tension I feel between the logical and the emotional in my double life. It also captures feelings of unease and isolation in an increasingly digital and fast-paced world. My goal is to create an emotional connection with the viewer and to raise questions about how we honor our emotional and spiritual dimensions under the pressures of modern life.
