I found my love for color, texture, pattern, and mark making during undergrad when I was figuring out who I am away from home. I was overwhelmed with the transition of being a young woman and reflecting on my positive / negative life experiences away from home. Non-representational abstraction intuitively came to me as a calming habit when the ongoing stress of my home life crept into my campus life. Mix color and really reading painted compositions based on movement and color grounded me and brought harmony back into my mental space. This is also when material embellishment first emerged in my studio practice. I would collect any kind of discarded materials based on their appearance and make my first assemblage.
