My paintings are my memories. I insist that things were a certain way, even if they were not. In this way, my paintings are like wishes. I like the idea of improbable or even impossible space in a painting. Things are twisted, swollen, flattened, and hidden. I tell my secrets without really telling them, keeping them and telling them all at once, veiling them with a sense of humor. These paintings are about being in love, and how that feels when you think about it later.
