Statement

I tend to romanticize parts of my life, especially when I travel; that’s when my soul feels most at peace. The food always tastes better, the mountains look more majestic, skylines seem taller-and flowers? Flawlessly vibrant. Almost as if each scene is politely asking me to paint it.

When I bring reference photos back to my studio, I want to recreate exactly what I experienced, with an emphasis on how I felt in those moments- like a personalized filter.

From a technical standpoint, dry brushing is my favored technique to maintain a smooth surface on the canvas. The lack of physical texture preserves an aspect of realism, while saturated color and soft visual edges draw out a romantic feel.

Because of these intentional stylistic and technical choices, my finished work manifests itself as realism through the feminine gaze.
