I work in monochromatic colors as a way to reduce and decrease. I believe our world is so saturated with information that I seek peace and quietness through my work. I also am somebody who needs to be in control of their life. To cope with that I'm approaching my paintings as an outlet to let go, and allow accidents to take over me.
My one rule is that I'm not allowed to plan how a painting is going to turn out. I start, add and remove, until eventually the work becomes done. My pieces take relatively quick to be made, however it takes me to create many of them, to have a few that have turned out good.
My current body of work consists of primarily monochromatic paintings in ink and acrylics, exploring patterns, textures and spontaneity.
