SERIES 1: COLOR COMBINATIONS 
In my most recent body of work, I have produced 16, 30x30cm mandala paintings. The paintings are made of many meticulous dots, some magically dripping on the edges. The process serves as a mindfulness painting practice, engaged through focused repetition. 

I have created 4 sets of 4 paintings; each set contains it’s own particular color palette. [Set 1: Blue & Purple, Set 2: Earth Tones, Set 3: Warm, and Set 4: The Blues.] Each painting set have similar colors, however are grouped in different ways. The goal of varying my color palettes and groupings is to reach viewers of eclectic color tastes. My intention is to embody positivity and pleasure through the juxtaposition of their energetic and calming color combinations. I am interested in how my selected color combinations can affect individuals’ sensory and psychological perceptions. I hope that the colorful dots can provide a pause in viewers, to mesmerize and enchant their minds and bodies. 

SERIES 2: COLORFUL BALANCE 
In this particular body of work, I have produced 10 large format paintings. My subject matter comprises mandalas, portraiture, and dancer paintings. These images are inspired by the vibrant city of Bangkok: its golden temples, hot pink taxis, lime green motorcycles, cyan blue malls, and magenta apartments. I am passionate about how vivacious color, mark making, and pattern can inform positive characteristics of human beings. I am also interested in mandalas because they are balanced, symmetrical structures. My purpose of painting center points and concentric layers within a mandala structure is to guide a balanced lifestyle. I have many ideas, thoughts and emotions that simultaneously occur in a single moment. The mandala helps me organize and focus, bringing me back to a central reference point. My goal of applying mandalas within portraiture is to embody balance within the individual. It is my hope that these works will inspire viewers to question and explore aspects of cognitive, emotional and spiritual balance in their own lives through present moment awareness. I also hope viewers will feel a combination of emotions: energy, pleasure, peace, relaxation and happiness through the viewings.
