‘From the Dirt’ is a series of works that transition from the darkness of growth into the lightness of flourishing. My work begins with intense and dark colors that are paired with a variety of textures. This series characterizes a period of experimentation, pushing boundaries, and finding success in the unexpected. As any change becomes normal, the “growing pains” became comfortable and my palate became easier, brighter, and more whimsical. As an artist, creating art has been a lesson in enjoying the process, not just placing paint on the canvas. It’s about letting roots go deep, growing tall, and finishing in beauty. Each work was made as such…and with a little bit of dirt around the edges.
