When Dreams Become Reality!! I've had this idea swimming and marinating in my head for over 2 years. After being inspired while looking at the evolution of Picasso's pottery journey, AND being heavily inspired by block printing in 2021, I had the idea to focus on painting pottery using simple gesture lines….
These exaggerations awakened in me a deep sense of freedom and revealed a sort of instinctual thought pattern. I feel these paintings have been stored deep inside of me along with my childhood. This collection of "Blue Beaches" awakens early habits and sensations, and plunged me deep into that miraculous world of imagination.
I was drawn to patterns in the waves and colors that reflected themselves in the clouds, water, and sky. During my time I spent in my sketchbook ( I logged over 200 days this year alone) I started to develop a rhythm and work from a more intuitive place. I reached for colors based on how I was feeling that day, and made marks based on how being next to the ocean made me feel in that moment. Each day the ocean gave me a new energy, a new face, and the waves were different each day.
