Gaea Collection

"Earth's crammed with heaven...but only he who sees takes off his shoes" - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

In Greek mythology, Gaea was the goddess of the earth, and the mother of everything beautiful.  Gaea (or Gaia) is also the Greek word for earth. 

With this series, I decided to create compositions completely out of circles using colors of the earth to represent our connection to nature and the beauty that surrounds us.

Bloom Collection

 

“You are not built down to shrink into less but to blossom into more” ~ Oprah

This piece is about finding the truth of who you really are, despite the stories we tell ourselves about who we aren’t. If we can put aside all of the “can’t”, we provide ourselves the opportunities to really bloom.

Look Closely Collection

 

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” – Albert Einstein

This series was inspired by the idea of slowing down and looking closely at the natural beauty that surrounds us.  My goal was to create a painting that is a zoomed in, close up look at natural, organic forms.  Its like peering into another world, and being able to see only one small piece of it.
