Artist Statement

My work is a record of mundane yet impactful experiences of everyday life. Memory and space create a visual narrative of the physical and metaphorical ways I navigate the world around me. Space is sometimes a place of comfort or other times a souvenir of a distant event. The memories I explore can be simultaneously joyful and melancholy, tender and distant, or hopeful and hopeless. Through my paintings I am processing and rediscovering the past in anew way through the intimacy and tactility of mark-making. Each work presents a bitter sweet narrative where I examine the complex circumstances that have brought me to a specific moment in time.

The palette's muted tones heighten the contemplative atmosphere, encouraging reflection on the human predicament. basketball stars
