I’ve had a bad year – there’s been a tremendous amount of loss in my life and I’ve been finding my way out of it. Art is cathartic and it’s creation is always emotional. In my new series “Shattered” I’ve been working with hard, jagged edges and rough textures in a monochromatic palette. There are glimmers of light and soft-focused images layered on the geometric “Prisons” that I’ve created. I don’t usually work in a series, but I’ve been inspired by the fact that we all go through rough patches and the challenge is in finding the light even when your world is shattered.
