Artist Statement: 

“My ongoing body of work, The Endless Cycles, uses the image of a washing machine as my symbolic muse and subject matter. While studying painting at Texas State University, one of my professors gave us the prompt: “Paint your biggest fear.” The washing machine became a symbol of my fear of being stuck on ‘endless cycles’ of bad habits that have the power to hold me back from my greatest potential. I enhance the colors from the photo source to represent the tempting nature of habits that are often disguised in beauty. Each painting I’ve created in this series explores a different behavior cycle I would like to break. My studio time is my sanctuary for self-reflection and where I feel the most ‘myself’ – I pour everything I am into my paintings and view them as self-portraits.”
