Lilly’s work involves an exploration of color, reflection, light and texture. She has been drawn to creative pursuits her whole life, and began to paint in highschool. Lilly’s loose application of paint, sometimes thrown onto the canvas and then manipulated with various palette knives or other tools has been par for her course of creative exploration. Through professor Mark Saltz, Lilly began to understand the concepts of color beyond her mere instinctual expressions. She has been focusing on painting her dogs, and is mostly inspired by interesting characters. Lilly has transcended her painterly canvases through the help of Professor Michael Kirk at Parsons in the exploration of printmaking. She is drawn to the use of color and texture as a means of expressing themes of home, childhood, and emotions.
