I create paintings of sun-drenched domestic spaces that celebrate the quiet moments of everyday life. My paintings are an opportunity for me to play with and piece together things I love into a painting: books of favorite artists, coffee cups and candlesticks, walls filled with family portraits, and art by friends. I wear my influences on my sleeve, sometimes using a Vuillard inspired pattern and including his book open on the table or showing a favorite Lois Dodd piece on the wall of my kitchen. I use light and pattern as tools for abstraction. These paintings, like my home, are filled with the things that bring me joy and comfort.
