Artist's Statement:

My paintings explore a psychological landscape that contains personal and physical experiences.  Many of them are set in a moment of suspension where the viewer is simultaneously apart from, but witness to an event and/or emotion.   My process involves collecting source materials and piecing elements together to create a study.  The study acts as a rough outline for the painting, which is then rendered through thin layers of acrylic paint on canvas.   While the paintings are informed by studies, the finished work is a product of translation, an idea-re-envisioned through material and imagination. My work is not stylistically identifiable - the subject matter seeming to dictate the style.
