I created this series of works in the summer of 2020, inspired by the lush and layered foliage of New Orleans. The vibrant color palette reflects the intense heat of Louisiana summer. The curving line element woven into each piece is an abstract representation of the Mississippi River.
I spent my earliest years in Santa Rosa, California where I was informed by the natural beauty of the Pacific coastline. At 14 I moved to Lafayette, LA where I attended the Lafayette Parish High School Arts Academy program under teacher Kathy Reed. I then studied fine arts painting at Pratt Institute in New York City. After moving to New Orleans in 2013 I discovered a fascination with aerial topography. My work draws on the ever-shifting contemporary landscape for inspiration, seeking to understand the processes and the changes they create. I have shown in New Orleans at Parse Gallery and Brand Gallery among others.
