About the Optimism collection:

To put it plainly, 2020 was a tough year. I’ve been holding my breath for close to 12 months - to avoid sharing breath and also waiting with bated breath to watch what was unfolding in our world.

Through it all, blank canvas was there for me as a space for expression - and space where it was okay to exhale. To express the grit and pain of the past year and also the unassailable optimism of the human spirit. For me, unstretched canvas was and is the perfect surface to reflect the moment. It wrinkles and buckles in unexpected ways, and balances the line between what we can control and what we cannot - all while encouraging me to celebrate and find beauty in the imperfect.

Now, while we aren’t through our challenges and in many ways never will be - I’m breathing again. I’m looking at the color all around me, appreciating the bloom of the early cherry blossoms against the blue sky and crisp air, the glow from an outdoor fire pit, and the little translucent green shoots of fresh sprouts I’m growing on my kitchen counter. Optimism is rising again in my chest, and I hope to share this feeling with you through my work.
