About the Series
This Series is birthed out of the images that I captured on our trip to the Amalfi coast this summer and is deeply personal for me. I left my heart in Italy years ago on a few college trips and going back was like going home again. It's been a wonderful year- we've had a baby boy and we've painted our fingeres off and it was such a wonderful trip to get away and reconnect with each other, disconnect from our phones, and connect with a different culture and soak in all the sights and savor all the flavors. I had the inspiration for this series just as I was leaving and wish I could have captured even more of our memories!
This is an experimental body of work- it's way different from what I usually do. I revisited representational styled work and played with different styles and techniques. So many hours and love and care have gone into each painting, capturing the dreamy island feel of the coast of Italy. Each piece is different and is part of my process to keep my work fresh and do the work that speaks to me. Will I do a series like this again soon? I'm not sure!! I just have to keep painting the images that keep me alive. Who knows what's coming next!
