My work is inspired by the edges of subjectivity and the ways in which a body contains and permits feeling. I’m interested in symbols that reframe everyday moments and current happenings into cosmic propositions, porous to history, repetition, and shared experience. I invite romance and fantasy into the work as politically inclusive gestures, with a history of connecting self and other, and reimagining stasis. My paintings are often about love.
