Intrigued by the intricacies of the tiny that are often overlooked, my passion for color, texture, and balance embodies the beauty and depth of a macro world view. I explore both natural and human made subjects. My artwork is frequently described as painting with beads. I employ an ancient, indigenous, Mexican Huichol beading technique to create contemporary artwork by embedding thousands of glass beads into beeswax/resin. Every bead is individually applied to create a unique and modern perspective from an age-old art technique. Each piece contains approximately 285 beads per square inch. Nearly 50,000 beads create a 13" x 13" artwork.
I have practiced Huichol style beadwork since 2016. After a near-death, medical event in October 2018, I filled my days and frequent sleepless nights with rediscovering and refining my artistic voice and technique. I now use my beading process as a meditative, creative conduit to explore themes of Resilience, Hope, Grace and Beauty.
