This new, colorful body of work began to take shape in 2022, on medium sized canvases. It started as a way to become free and to use intuition. When I eventually took it to larger canvases, I experimented with drips and embraced the limited control. I learn to accept what the painting was telling me and layer a combination of acrylic, and oil paint on canvas to create vibrant and textural paintings. Along the way, I noticed common threads and color themes. I became genuinely interested in color combinations and how this affects us as people. I used what I know of the psychology of color, to evoke joy. This exploration seeks to push boundaries and encourage the viewer to see abstraction as a living part of our world.
