Artist Statement

My paintings are inspired by themes central to family, home and the stories produced by the fertile ground of youth. The empty places that inhabit the surface are recollections of interior spaces that suggest abandonment with an impreciseness that often accompanies faded memories. My materials-driven process creates layers of paint and mixed media to evoke the passage of time, a sense of loss and reverence for the past. The results are highly textured fields of color, collaged and etched with organic lines, intuitive marks, and repetitive shapes.
