statement

The paintings in this series evolved from drawings that were done while traveling to Bahia, in northern Brazil. They were inspired by the lightness of the colors, the air, the ocean, and the vegetation of that amazing place. I built up the surfaces to create texture that I would then incise into and layer over once again until the final image emerged.
