I depict the sometimes conflicting aspects of life through painted images. I utilize various techniques and subject matters- each chosen to best communicate my questions to the viewer. While seemingly disparate, my bodies of work are not at odds. Rather, they offer several entrance points to the question of how people balance multiple spheres of influence and experience – often overlapping, interfering, or repelling one another.
Throughout my work I explore the tension between memory and reality, the urban and rural landscapes, and the extraordinary complexities of everyday life.
