My work is inspired by Moroccan textiles, travel experiences and untranslatable words. Incorporating geometric patterns into bold dream-like landscapes, bursts of color and simplified shapes pull the viewer into other-worldly environments. By gathering inspiration from a trip through Morocco and the School of Life’s deck of untranslatable words, I am weaving together memories while attempting to express feelings for which there are no words in English. Often when returning from a journey, I have found myself speechless or at a loss about how to convey the experience. These paintings seek to express what words can not.
