The Story Behind the Window Series

The Window Series is an extremely personal, albeit vulnerable series. The long story short it that since my early 20s, I have battled some serious surgeries and complications from Crohn’s Disease. For the last two years, I have been trying to heal from what I thought would be my last surgery. Almost 2 years later, I am still not healed and have not sat down since Thanksgiving 2017. Yes, you read that right. The surgery left me unable to sit down. At all. Channeling my inner Frida Kahlo who endured her own physical battles painting from bed, I have found joy painting through the pain.

The Window Series was born quite naturally as that has been my main vantage point. All of the pieces are abstract and impressionistic in nature and of some of my favorite places: Cape Cod Marshes, New England Beaches, and the view from my childhood BFF’s family cottage off of Long Island, Maine. I hope these bring you hope on the horizon. I praise God that I can indeed paint through the pain.
