My artwork represents the tension which exists between the real and the fantastic, between the dream state and mundane reality. Inspired by Japanese woodblock prints and pre-Raphaelite paintings, I utilize contemporary methods of painting using a computer program as a means of creating art. Working in a pointillist style I am able to depict imagery as in a genre painting to create dream-like portraits. Born out of mythic tales, my art traverses the realms of desires, fantasies, and myths, while maintaining a playful innocence, reflecting back on the female psyche.
Out of an array of colors, my pointillist pieces come to life helping me to construct through the use of a computer painting program, a means of creating a drama consisting of reflections of women's inner stories. While working, I employ elements of collage in my paintings to conjure up images created from a mixture of fantasy, mood, and symbolism, blended together in a variety of ways to create my own world.
