I am interested in how our experience of the physical interacts with the psychological to create something beyond what is initially perceived. Influenced by our complex relationship to the world around us and the lens through which we understand reality, these images are pieced together in fragments, creating an environment that is both familiar and strange. With a background in printmaking and collage, I build up my paintings in thick layers of oil paint that I also work into reductively. Through this process, the textured surfaces of my paintings become not a sequential narrative but the residue of information, memory, and touch as accumulated material referencing the structures in which we live our lives.
