I paint everyday objects that have seemingly human qualities, often incorporating the imperfections and unique characteristics that help shape personality. The subjects in my work recur from painting to painting and often contain nuanced differences, giving them a sentimental history that reveals nostalgia and varying identity. The surfaces of my paintings are made by pouring fluid acrylics and spraying various homemade spray paints. The use of fluid acrylic makes my process part strategic and part reactionary, and often leads to unintended outcomes.
