Akin to writing in a journal, my paintings are a record of daily lived and imagined experiences. They reflect a contemplation of the whimsical space existing between reality, memory, and a daydream. Balance, repetition, bold color, and a bit of friendly confusion guide my decision-making process. Beneath the conglomeration of motifs is the suggestion of personal identity tied to the repetition of daily life—domestic work, the adornment of one’s home, self care—and the joyfulness hidden within the illusion of a bored routine.
