My sister has been obsessed with fog since we were children. Mimetic Desire is the term for growing to love something because someone we love loves it/them/etc... So seeded my love of atmosphere.
In the fall of 2013 I took Color Theory 101 with Kerstin Engman and learned the basics of how color is effected by light and atmosphere.
This knowledge collided with an ongoing fascination with painting the intersection of planes and
established my current series of inquiry; how to push the depiction of atmosphere to a hard line.
