I’m interested in painting and color as a way to explore interior spaces and intimate moments that are often overlooked—paying attention to what is happening when “nothing” is happening—specifically through the nuance and beauty of shadows during ordinary scenes. Shadows have reminded me that these spaces are not static; they're constantly shifting, blending, shrinking, and elongating our surroundings and ourselves, causing our shapes to mingle and hues to change even if we don't intend for them to. Sometimes dappled with light or engulfed in darkness, shadows remind us that life is not still and these are not just "still lives." Through my painting practice, I’ve learned to become more present and find intrigue in the repetitive and familiar, and I hope the viewer is able to find intrigue and joy in their day to day, too.
