Dominique began her fascination with small, shiny objects at the age of 3 when her grandmother introduced her to a tin of broken beaded necklaces. Over the years, she explored her concept of “eye candy” as a jewelry artist establishing Asymmetry Design by Dom., creating one-of-a-kind pieces of beadwork that are each unique, asymmetrical, yet perfectly balanced. Her progression into sculpture and incorporating found objects is a natural step; integrating rusty relics with precious jewels. Each piece contains a story, a root and reason.

My inspiration comes from landscape and things in nature. 


I love the abstract quality of colors, textures, shapes, and movement of light. I love the ethereal quality of light on a field of native grass and how it changes moment to moment. 

Besides the obvious visual aspects of landscape, I am fascinated with the process of organic material in the natural environment. To me, the process of nature speaks about life and death, vulnerability, strength, decay, rebirth and time. It speaks transformation. This is what drives my approach to painting. I like to paint in a way that records the process of nature doing its own work.

In my studio, I am conscious of painting using methods that honor the processes of nature. For example, mists of water added to the surface might drip and then allow gravity to pull, create line or reveal deeper layers of a painting. My work may shimmer or change color moment to moment, depending on where the light hits the surface and where the viewer is standing in relation to that painting. A surface may be built up, buried and then scrapped to reveal texture in a process much like erosion or time.
