Artist Statement

In my practice, I respond to our interconnectedness through the act of painting. My compositions are a call and response between states of disruption and integration. I layer and detach from previous studio sessions to create a mindful aesthetic that reflects our impermanence. My imagery develops through intuitive actions and interpretations of observations drawn from daily life. I use compositions as a way to mark time and create symbolic calendars. I structure compositions on bilateral order and relieved symmetry as these connect to embodiment and nature. My works become visual prayers that hold my concern. The process is a meditation in its act, and the result is an accumulation of mark, memory, and symbolism.
