I get a lot of inspiration for my art from nature and biology in its multitude of forms. A picture I took of a tree stump on its side beached on Vashon Island, Washington serves as a running motif and can be found in the three pieces in this exhibit.
In the piece titled “Save”, through multiple layers of paint and collage as well as color, I’m playing with the idea of memories: some are darker and more clouded, while others are more vibrant and present. The piece “Boundary Issues” delves a little deeper into what happens when things start to break down in the brain as is the case with Alzheimer’s Disease.
