Original Watercolor - 21" x 16" (framed)

I have spent the last two years exploring the concept of portals in my creative process. I love the idea of being transported and transformed by simple moments, and I use these portals as a safe place to go in challenging times. I share them with the hope that others can experience their own transportation and reflection. I believe we are collectively in a constant state of Moving Beyond, and that the beauty of art is how it allows us to simultaneously reflect on portals of the past, sit in the magic of the present moment, and propel ourselves forward into another spring.

 

Artist Statement:

I started my journey with watercolors at the age of four in a Waldorf preschool classroom in Ashland, Oregon. Since then I have explored many other mediums, but I always come back to my watery home. I am drawn to the balance between control and spontaneous movement that the water inspires. My creative process has been a consistent friend since before my memory begins, and it is what keeps me grounded in all other areas of my life.
