I make paintings, works on paper, and site-specific works that evoke places, moments, and consciousness. The paintings are human-sized and invite the viewer to be in the painting as opposed to looking at it. I am perpetually interested in the experiential moment. My work explores the concept of what remains visible of my process, and equally important, what no longer remains.

Sisters is a body of work that responds to the power and the expression of the female voice. The works are large-scale oilstick paintings on paper that use a personal vocabulary of line, gestural marks, color, and texture.
