My current work is an attempt to find calm in the midst of the chaos that surrounds us. Control and lack of control play big roles in my work. I am using materials that prove difficult to control, such as swirling, fluid acrylics and watery watercolors. These pieces use nature in and around me as my muse. When I got pregnant I realized how little I have control over my body and whether the little babe in me would survive full term or develop healthily. Since then I have been conscious about situations in which I have control and don't. Living in this juxtaposition is exciting and nerve-racking. I'm trying to find calm and quiet in my work and in this juxtapostion, I hope you can find calm and quiet in it too.
