These nonobjective watercolor paintings are about balance and sensual, fluid forms. The organic lines, forms, and colors create a sense of compositional harmony in each painting, but as a whole, I tried to surrender control of the work's outcome and paint intuitively. The medium lends itself to much spontaneity.
Now that I am finished with college and once again removed from thinking of art in a traditional, competitive sense, I am striving to return to the core of what creation is fundamentally about (for me, right now). These paintings are a reflection of my journey to create peace and balance in my all aspects of my life.

My oil painting, "Lemacado", will be on display at the Pittsburg Public Library for the next six months. This will be a bi-annual rotating display by local artists and art owners.
