Spring Rittenhouse 2024
My recent move to the city of Philadelphia has been the inspiration for my architecture series. I love the vibrancy and energy of this city and enjoy expressing it through my art. Colorful windows, spiral quilting and textural surface design are all tools I use to express my experience.
I also am inspired by the natural world around me and my goal is to create depth, movement and a sense of perspective in my work. Dynamic use of color, use of sheers and layering of elements work together to achieve this goal. Slightly curving lines portray gracefulness and circles are often present representing wholeness and creativity.
