Life, as I know it, has been an exercise of controlling a kind of chaos. Learning to contain my brain (the mess) and construct with some sense of control. It is what has to be done most of the time and on many levels. Composition, color and texture encompass my work in all of everything I do. Cooking professionally, I incorporate these three always, so that I can hand over, to the client, a visually appetizing dish that they WANT to eat. When editing photos for a client, I am obsessively aware of color and composition and strive to elevate the textures that already exist in the
image. In my painting, I get to do my three things for me. I get to spill my mind out on to a blank piece of fabric and compose it and color it just so. Just for me.
