Artist Statement

My primary focus is on the process of painting. Within this process, I'm interested in the parameters of painting and the ever-shifting construction of meaning, memory, and representation in day-to-day life. I vary my approach to painting by constructing a visual language from fragments of stored information, as well working from direct observation, photographs, and multiple other sources, both visual and literary. I Use a variety of painterly techniques and styles culled from the history of painting and I work both abstractly and figuratively without making much distinction between the two. Whatever gets the job done.
