As a picture-maker, I open myself to narratives that draw from a flood of information, assembling compositions which connect visual correspondences in a symbolic or metaphorical way. I am inspired by diverse images and objects that can reside anywhere from my own backyard to antique ephemera. Religious iconography. Ancient depictions of intellectual evolution and traditional clothing. Shoes. Heirloom goats and mathematical graphics. Deep historical tragedy, migrations, taking refuge and the sacred. Tonalities and vegetable gardens.
The preparation of food. The probability of all being intertwined. Genetic memory.
I generally work with familiar materials such as wood, house paint, oils, watercolor, and gouache. Inspired by various folk art forms, I often employ strong colors. I hope to create a harmonious tension through color relationships, resulting in a perceivable visual energy.
