The Steps You Don’t See

Often times in ART and in LIFE, an observer sees the piece or person in front of them- at that particular moment. However, hidden from sight are all the INTENTIONAL steps, the WORK, the TIME that the artwork/person has put in to get to that spot.

In my artwork, often there are layers, textures, details that are hidden from sight. Not because I don’t think they are important. In fact, just the opposite - their story contributes to the piece as a whole. From thumbnail to signature each piece dances along the planned vs intuitive line.

My original art captures not only an image, but also time, energy, and loads of love. 🤍
