Artist's Notes

The Painting: I'm always on the lookout for a little bit of pink in Paris - a blushing glass of rosé, the color of the late afternoon sky, magnolias blooming in the gardens of the Palais-Royal, a bundle of peonies at the market. But my favorite splashes of this hue might just be unexpected facades of buildings tucked in between those built with typical Hausmannian stone. I always keep my eyes peeled for them while out walking, and this particular treasure is just a few steps away from Notre Dame. I love how it's tucked between its neighbors, a few floors shorter, blushing the prettiest shade of rose like a macaron in a Ladurée box.

The Series: Paris always inspires, no many how many times I visit. Painting is a way to sift through and edit the overwhelming number of amazing things I see in in the city, where my eyes are constantly ping-ponging from the tiniest details to the most monumental of monuments. Sketching while the world is walking by as I sit at a sidewalk table and pretend to drink my coffee, with field boxes and supplies scattered across chairs at the Jardin du Luxembourg, or settled in my makeshift studio at the end of the day, my paints help sort through and make sense of everything I see, and to store it all away safely in my mind.
