Mixed media on canvas 

24”h x 48”w 



Little pieces of color and shapes form a Totem, reminiscent of collage work. I grew up visiting these special places that taught us about Native Americans. I remember seeing totem poles for the first time and being impacted. As this painting started to develop, I was thinking of the stacking stones along the trails I walk and these totems from my past.

Get to Know the Austin Artist:

My paintings are created by incorporating a variety of media, including acrylic, pastels, oil pastels, pencils, and charcoal to build layers and movement into each piece. Inspiration for my work is taken from observing unique patterns of color in nature as well as everyday scenes as they pass by and become abstracted and mentally catalogued. I have always spent a lot of time in nature, observing weathered surfaces, colors of stones, striations in earth, moss, wildflowers, and the rough native terrain of the Texas Hill Country. Music plays a significant, almost synesthetic role in the process of making a painting. Mental images take on a softer and more lyrical appearance as they are translated intuitively onto the canvas with each mark, color choice, and brush stroke. I first began painting after visually seeing hues of the music I was listening to - patterns of color formed, then a composition in my mind and I was compelled to paint what I was experiencing. 


I draw from an intuitive, spontaneous space when painting while trying to show visual representation of vibration and frequency in my work. Getting into a flow state mentally opens a pathway to create authentically. For me it’s all about tapping into that flow state and creating work that exudes joy, beauty, and sometimes the unexpected. Everything is energy, finding the right movement, vibration, and fluidity of making a composition that draws the viewer in is just capturing the energetic signature of the work on a canvas.
