STATEMENT

My drawings are a direct representation of where I am at the time. I carry a sketchbook most days and enjoy the immediacy. My paintings come out of this same process. I use color to express luminosity, and abstract patterns to camouflage the narrative. This ambiguity creates the mystery.

When creating my constructions I start working with recycled materials from my own paintings and drawings and from randomly collected objects, both natural and manmade. When juxtaposition occurs and an image and narrative appear I continue to work until it has meaning from fragmented memories. I find the process of making the constructions more tangible and playful, freeing me, by eliminating preconceived ideas it opens the possibilities of new discovery.
