“My paintings are emotional. They are dimensional spaces that shift and transform. They communicate the contrasts of our human experience visually, viscerally, and psychologically through color, texture, and surface. They reflect presence and absence simultaneously. The paintings emerge from building up the surface with thin stains of paint and sanding in between to preserve the previous layers. This allows for the memory of the painting to be subtly visible, appearing and then dissolving, creating a surface that breathes and remembers.”
