 How should we question that which recurs daily? It is ordinary to aggrandize the everyday, daydream of what could be, and give significance to the otherwise insignificant. We carry about as though the everyday holds no questions nor answers, as if it doesn’t bear any information. My work explores these unasked questions and seeks to respond to them, though the answers are often evasive.

Through oil painting I use the familiarity of ordinary objects and refuse to ask the viewer to decelerate, take time to engage with the subject matter, and appreciate its worth through deliberate consideration.
