ARTIST STATEMENT: Drawing is the foundation of my practice. I work with a variety of media to create complex and layered images that evoke a transformative response to an aesthetic encounter. I have a passion for all forms of drawing, for its intimacy and fluidity, and for its ability to surprise and immediately capture a particular moment in time. My Painting process is guided by a desire to birth something that invites contemplation and that is as real and alive as the moment that inspired it. I want the image to be intense in its presence, and through its scale, strong narrative content, materiality and composition, aggressively attract the viewer. Much of the work comes from daily encounters and expresses universal experiences. I use photographs, sounds, and language to create larger than life images. The mural-scale format allows the image to become architectonic and to inhabit a space.
