ARTIST STATEMENT: "This series of work focuses on geometric shapes shifting in space. I first create a dynamic shape and then establish shadows which push the shape forward into space. Intricate patterns and washes of color are then painted on the surface. I work with contrasting hard and soft shapes and geometric markings. Working on thick watercolor paper I'm able to change the format of my canvas by cutting the surface into a charismatic shape instead of the traditional rectangle."
