“I’m interested in how much a single narrative moment can tell us about ourselves. At first glance my work appears ordinary but nothing is really what it seems. The backgrounds of my work are covered with words that are scratched into the walls of the rooms. It can have a contradictory quality, yet are integrated into the space as it is into human consciousness. The paintings are purposely intimate in scale or detailed so that the viewer is drawn in for a closer look. Then the narrative or content can change because of the written words on the walls or other images that are not immediately visible. Repeated images such as brick, plants, crumpled paper, windows and sky, reflect the surreal subtleties that lurk in the mundane and peripheral experience of contemporary life. My work is involved with expressing the paradoxical truths and the short stories have psychological theory. The characters for the most part are people that I know. I want my work to be accessible, thought provoking, say something and to possibly make a difference. I believe the personal is political and that the personal reference in my work can be a universal experience.”
