"Connection is why we are here, gives purpose and meaning to our lives."--Brene Brown. Through the use of multiple mediums, from photography to house paint, I am continuing to explore human interactions. However in this body of work, the environment and surroundings also hold an importance. Focusing on the connections created between individuals with one another, and even more with myself. How am I connected to the people I encounter in my life, how do I feel, how do they serve me, what can I give to them, what can we learn from each other? In this new body of work I am tapping into the use of shape, line, and color through expressive abstract mark making.
