That Fresh Feeling
Freedom of thought and movement were scarce commodities in my childhood, so after becoming a mother in a new country surrounded by people who spoke a different language, I was determined to embrace my individuality. Approaching my abstract paintings with an intention of autonomy rather than predetermined or concrete outcomes nurtures a side of myself long repressed. Expressive gestural movements guide playful, rhythmic, free flowing exploration. Through abstract expression I unearth the natural beauty and energy within, experienced as peaceful blues and greens combined with bright pops. Spontaneous layered marks and tangles capture moments of complete release and confidence in self and movement. Nurturing safe spaces for a raw release of one's true colors, free of judgment. The shock of navigating those first steps of motherhood without my supportive network and being thrown headfirst into a new culture and language served as a guiding light to seize my passion, lean into my desires, and trust my voice. Inspired by the energy of human connection and dynamic elements such as water and coral reefs, I color my world. In humanity’s imperfection lies so much beauty and triumph that deserves to be celebrated.
