"The smallest things are often what connect us as human beings. The calming presence of a sibling or friend, moments of anticipation, tenderness, and personal triumph are realities we share. These paintings are based on memories, both personal and borrowed. They are an attempt to explore a collective human experience. Details and features remain ambiguous inviting the viewer to seek something of themselves in the work. The figure (human and animal) has provided a generous vehicle for color, form and surface to evolve. Paint and wax are layered, dripped and scraped to create a sense that the subject is still emerging…still ‘becoming’."
