Whether by paintbrush or etching press, color is what usually speaks to me first. I create using a variety of media including acrylics, canvas, papers, collage, ephemera, and press. What makes me passionate about each piece on which I work are the immediacy of my personal feelings, the colors and the textures. If something moves me, be it a personal experience or something in my environment, I try to incorporate into my work.
My works explore and combine abstraction and representation, sometimes within the same piece. In the process of experimentation and unknown possibilities, one image generates another. I usually begin with life inspirations and a general direction of where I want the piece to go but seldom do I know where the process will lead me.
My artwork is about mixing ideas, images and media to produce the unexpected. My works explore and combine abstraction and representation, sometimes within the same piece. I trust my impulses to create vivid ranges and imagery.
In the process of experimentation and unknown possibilities, one image or idea generates another. I usually begin with a general direction of where I want the piece to go but seldom do I know where the process will lead me.
When I am not making art, I enjoy family, my dog, and travel.
A native Angeleno, I studied fine arts and advertising graphics at UCLA, CSUN, Corcoran Gallery, and Art Center School of Design. Before turning her energies fully to painting and printmaking, she worked inadvertising and graphic design, event planning and courtroom graphics. In recent years, Kichaven has had the honor to study with Franklyn Liegel, Ron Pokrasso, Michael McCabe, and Linda Taylor.
My art is in private collections throughout the United States.
