My initial interest in this work focused on the narrative of singular females in contemplative spaces, something I was perhaps seeking in my own life, seeing the importance of in the world around me. As I progressed, the form of the painting structure became more important and curious to me - the push-pull of the planes and shapes, the juxtaposed colors and lines, spaces which hover between two and three dimensions. I discovered a desire to push the abstraction of the image, to explore the use of color, while keeping the work figurative and narrative at the same time. The women independently and collectively are strong, peaceful, contemplative and reflective of the world we could live in.
