I am a new Boise artist that focuses on the psychological significance of art. The theme of my work embodies free-flowing emotions, whether positive or negative, in observable form. I am interested in how the psyche affects art and how it can be used as a form of therapy. Just as the strokes of paint weave in and out and layer upon each other, the artist’s mind is interconnected with their work of art. Some brush marks are like a clear and crisp thought, and others tangle throughout the painting, expressing a complex set of feelings. Each body of my work demonstrates this entanglement of the mind and the physical. I am passionate about this concept as I use my own art as a method of growth, and hope to touch others with the message that art is more than just a pretty painting; it is an emotional journey.
