The paintings I create are based on visual and written recordings of people, places, and/or things I find interesting and in someway, feel a connection to. In my studio I transform and reduce those thoughts and feelings into paintings that reflect on those experiences. I work in oil, which gives me the freedom to create layered, transparent, and textural surfaces that allow me to engage the viewer in not only the colors, lines, and shapes, but also to create a connection between the viewer and my work.
Abstraction allows me to explore, adopt, adapt, and reflect on life experiences through documenting specific moments in time.
