Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

I find connections between the conceptual aspects of my life and its finer details. I've begun follow patterns as I recognize them. I paint a lot of single figures, people who exist in patterned settings, such as a checkerboard tiled room. The transitory nature of the subjects resonates with me and my subjects include things that have a temporary or brief life: children (they grow older), flowers; the fragile act of sleep; the precarious nature of good health. I draw, frequently, and incorporate work in my sketchbook into composite images in my paintings. To extend the connections further, I incorporate sense memory, like an actor relies on experiences to inform a character, my sensory experience often feeds my work in oil on linen, tempera and watercolor on paper. I especially like the feel of paint as it is applied to a linen or paper support.
