about

 Nature has always been a big part of my life and has shaped not only my art, but the way I see and experience the world.  Finding beauty in simple things has given me a unique perception of what the world has to offer.  I have fallen in love with the wide range of effects working with tea creates and the controlled chaos it can produce.  The textures and colors in my pieces come from nature and allow me to use them in their rawest form.  The simple beauty of my work is unique, not only in appearance, but also in the creation.  The natural patterns are mesmerizing and provide a different environment that is truly one of a kind. 

My work invites people into a world of different textures and colors, allowing them to explore and find patterns within each piece.  Sometimes I add drawings to my pieces to give more life to the work and make the tea feel like an environment one can relate to.  Other times, I feel that the tea alone creates its own atmosphere and with each piece I allow it to tell me where to go.  I imagine that each painting is like a person in how they have different needs.  Although they each may be made from similar materials, they are all individual and unique.  I invite viewers to get up-close and personal with my pieces to experience the subtle colors and textures that are the true beauty of my work.
