Chasing Tornados and Dreams Series

The Chasing Tornados and Dreams series felt like each painting became a page of a diary or journal entry. For the first time, I allowed the work to change, drift and evolve, as it needed to. As events unfolded in my own life, the paintings then became metaphorical representations of the experiences. I used images that I was drawn to, and didn’t necessarily have a plan for the allegorical element within the work.

The children’s imagery comes from my daughter’s drawings and my interest in how Zoe sees the world with a sense of naiveté, enthusiasm and purity. She isn’t bound by the knowledge of the anatomy of a bird, the laws of gravity, or even the color of the sky. She draws how she wants it to be. I try to capture some of this freedom by using her interpretations of dogs, cats, houses, flowers, suns and birds in my work.

I enjoy the juxtaposition between Zoe’s viewpoint and the complexity of my own world (that sometimes I become lost in). These facets collide to create this new body of work, which is constantly in flux and changes as the external influences change in my life.
