During the COVID 19 Shutdown in 2020, with my state shut down and my events, classes and other projects canceled I found myself with more space to create and time to explore a new side of my artwork.
Before Covid I had only dabbled in abstract art, only for teaching classes about color theory or composition. After the shutdown and dealing with personal losses, abstract art was something therapeutic when I didn’t feel like working on my personal projects. Over time it was something that grew from marks on a sketchbook page to full paintings. I also did other work like self-portraits and metal sculpture. My new book Hiatus is my way to share this restorative journey with everyone.
