Flight Patterns Nº 3 is part of a new series of encaustic paintings about abstracted shapes and natural patterns that occur when light / shadows move cross the water. I originally watched birds fly above the ocean and then noticed similar beautiful occurrences over swimming pools and lakes. It's like watching something magical happen. This group of works are about lush saturated colors, motion and light play.

Growing up in a small mid-western town where art was not essential at the time meant I had a late start compared to some of my colleagues. I wasn’t born with a brush in my hand nor did I start drawing when I was 3. However, I was naturally creative with what I had available to me as a kid and spent tremendous amounts of time outdoors imagining, playing and writing. I realize now looking back, a dynamic imagination is one of the footholds in a strong artistic foundation. The 3rd year in college is where my choices fully opened and I suddenly learned I had a talent for painting. I'd like to be clear how fortunate I am - a lot of life events could have happened that didn't. Some of my personality traits helped propel me through this period in my life. I went from zero to 60 in moments and did it while battling progressive severe ulcerative colitis. I was also given a lot of help for which I am eternally grateful. I graduated with a BFA and honors in painting and was accepted into the MFA program at University of Washington, Seattle. I flourished in the studio environment, grew to treasure the freedom professors granted me and loved the diverse cultural events Seattle offered. There was a point during this time I was becoming terribly ill and thought I would have to drop out of grad-school. I refused. I mean it – I absolutely refused. I took 3 months off, had 3 major surgeries and stubbornly insisted on returning as soon as I could. After grad-school, instead of moving to NYC as expected, I relocated to Los Angeles. I was young (recovering from life-altering surgeries), wanted to experience all kinds of worlds, do the unexpected and get to know something completely different. I continued to paint, show in group exhibitions and consistently sold work in South Hollywood. To fund my studio pursuits and ultimately help support my family, I worked as an interface designer that led to a stellar long term career in web development. I continued to make art, but there was always an element of unrest because of the constant divided attention between a demanding career and time in the studio. In 2012, I made one of the best decisions of my life — to return my entire focus to painting, drawing and photography. I have never been happier.
