    Painting, for me is a visceral exploration of ideas. I use a collection of personal iconography and explore themes of escape, safety and impermanence. Sometimes images are clearly apparent and sometimes they are swallowed by color and abstraction. I’m particularly interested in the space and interaction that exists between the forms and how they allude to space outside the frame.
    This world exists within its own energetic rules of gravity and perspective.
    The combination of representational and abstract elements helps me to tap into the emotional continuity that exists in tandem with daily life while allowing me an opportunity to enjoy my connection to texture, color and form.
