Water plays an integral part in my painting process. I layer light through gestures of paint, color washes and transparent glazes that I manipulate with water and brushes, evoking a sense of lush atmosphere.
As my relationship with water and paint evolved, I began to take paintings outside and into the rain, inviting the unknown, creating patterns of color and light through layers of raindrops and color. The result was an engaging representation of the beauty, chaos and transformation found in our relationship to nature and to each other.
This process of using falling rain, as well as collected recycled rainwater, inspired a deeper mindfulness for natural resources in my art practice, while advocating sustainability through art.
