'of love, and thorns'

original art


homegrown indigo pigment, watercolor, pastel, & ink on paper



The complexly layered reds and purples of this image seem to melt off the page with youthful exuberance, dissipating quickly into the soft blues, greys, and whites of a winter sky. The  image speaks to the nourishment that exists in love, while also acknowledging the hardships that shape it.


This artwork is part of the winter 2024 "Shadows" collection. The series contemplates the stillness of winter while honoring the memory of what has come before. For this series I took pride in connecting with the surfaces beneath my paint. The watercolors were born out of light shadowy washes, forming the foundation of the composition layered above. The signature natural pigment used is homegrown indigo, which I nurtured from seed last spring, cared for through the summer, harvested in the fall, and processed into paint this winter.
