Memories play an important part in every human’s life. Each of us accumulates information in many different ways. We access our past memories to interpret the present and point a path to the future. We always stand in the present looking both directions.

 

The complexity of my surfaces allows for a shifting dialogue of contrasting structures, techniques, and mediums. This multilayered approach changes the conversation with each painting and evokes new sets of memories, feelings, and thoughts. This rich variety of mark-making creates forms that are suggestive of the mysterious and personal, as well as the gesture of the body marking in space and time.

 

Surfaces fuse, overlap and intertwine, shaping and reshaping, creating order and forming a memory of the act itself.  The act of painting becomes a time of meditation. My work is a record of those moments.
