While most of my work has been created with ink, colored pencil and occasionally acrylic, I decided to challenge myself and explore a new medium. With the help and guidance of a few friends, I explored oils for the first time.
This body of work comes from finding the balance between dreams and nightmares; depression, isolation, emptiness, fear, warmth, comfort, and confidence. I found solace and inspiration during solo trips to the desert and daily walks through my neighborhoods; Never before had I spent so much time in isolation and solitude throughout quarantine and three moves. While achieving a healthy balance between my full time day job, painting, and my mental health has been very difficult for me, it has become an incredible learning experience.
A vessel is a hollow container, whether full or empty, does not matter.
Isn't it about finding a space to be content with feeling both."
