My work is about my process of exploring overlooked glimpses of visual reflections that coexist all around us.
My conceptual process and inspiration is always in flux; I reanimate fragments of my life through a broad palette of wood, oil, wax, paint and photographs, layering images to expose another realm of existence.
Each piece is a cumulative expression of the dimensions between our desire to see what we want to see and what is actually there. Photos are taken without the guise of perfected shutter speeds and paint is pulled across these surfaces, allowing the oil, water and wax to do what they may, giving us just enough information---but without clouding our sight.
