I like her balance of geometric abstraction and realism. Her statement about the work is well written and concise;

  • "My paintings are about light, structure and place. I am drawn to subjects that offer a formal approach to painting and composition making. The clarity and controlled specificity of the paint’s value, color, and placement is critical. I aspire to make pictures that are considered, and honest to subject and craft."
Not enough can be said about that last sentence - especially the part about being "honest to subject and craft" - two virtuous and admireable attributes for a painting.

These paintings remind me of the work of photographer Philipp Hennig:
