Artist Statement

 My paintings depict a world that represents both my unconscious and a recollection of art history.  Still lifes, portraits, and interiors correspond to people and things in the real world, but in the paintings they are presented in a timeless space reminiscent of a stage.  The young women, plants, and non-living things arrange themselves self-consciously toward the viewer.  The subject matter is drawn from potted plants and rooms in my home, as well as from walks I take through tree-lined suburban streets.  The imagery also recalls Dutch still lifes, and works by Matisse and Manet.  The paintings of women portray friends, but they are made with works by northern Renaissance artists like Jan Van Eyck and Petrus Christus in mind.  Images of curtains, windows and frames as well as the paintings’ relatively small size create an experience of entering a porthole into this world.
