My current body of work, Out of Body, explores color relationships and visual compositions inspired by stereoscopic photography.  I’m interested in visual effects typically bound to a specific medium and translating them onto a canvas.  While choosing female imagery and a seductive aesthetic, my primary focus is the creative process and how the colors, brushstrokes, and figures interact in the painting.   
The eyes and familiar human form draw the viewer in, while the image’s multi-colored layers play and alternate the painting’s central focus. Instead of creating a specific focal point, the viewer’s attention sways back and forth from each defined figure.  My work dances on the line of portraiture and illusion, generating truly alluring and unexpected pieces that inspire creativity and imagination through a feminine lens.
