I started creating my Skies series when I lived in New York and noticed how amazing the sunsets looked even if I could only see them through a little bit of space among all the buildings. When I moved to LA my view of the sky become much wider. With these paintings, I give the sky full attention and the buildings and landscapes come second.
My Color Block paintings are based simply on my love of pure color. I want to see big swatches of solid paint color and use embroidery as a way to frame each one and add more colors without disrupting the space with more paint. I primarily work with unstretched canvas, making it part of the content as opposed to just a support. Each piece is a hybrid of paint on canvas and embroidery on fabric, combining fine art with folk art.
