I make art to sift through information; the act of painting serves as a site for wrestling with thoughts, feelings, and reactions to daily experiences. Sometimes this coheres into invented vignettes with figures and objects, and in other instances it is reduced to something basic and essential. In all cases, I look to stretch past my previous work and to draw constellations of associations that accurately reflect my inner life. The paintings serve as a kind of map or bridge between the inside and the outside.
