As an artist who paints and dances, I'm consistently looking for ways to have each discipline influence the other. In this series, I explore the nexus of dance and paint through the lens of underwater plants and creatures. With realistic renderings, I create dramatic and colorful compositions of life beneath the waves that combine the subject's natural movement patterns with elements of theatrical performance. I approach composing each piece in a similar fashion to how I approach choreography and performance, and as with all my work, I play with color and natural pattern throughout each painting.
