About the Exhibition:
Nature is the main muse of my acrylic paintings on canvas, which feature bold florals and bright color palettes. Now more than ever, those vibrant colors bring a sense of light and hope in a world that can seem uncertain and dim. I practice intuitive painting, and my work explores layers of texture, rhythm, and movement as I interpret it in the natural world.

This collection was inspired by the idea of sun-drenched summer memories. I painted most of it during the long pandemic winter, when many of us are prone to seasonal depression, as an antidote to the bleak landscape. I wanted to infuse the paintings with joy! It is my hope that this work will bring a sense of lightness as we look forward to life after the pandemic.
