My work plays with the various thoughts and emotions that pass through my mind at any given moment. Working with memory, fantasy, dreams, and time, I use multiple selves to create a narrative sequence that reflects on ideas of internal conflict, self doubt, and emotional trauma. My painted figures escape the confines of naturalism and begin to merge and duplicate, while some are completely obliterated or left as faint drawings. Like a memory or dream, parts of the narrative become blurred or fragmented—and the original thought is always transformed.
