Artist Statement

I believe that the human figure more than anything helps connect
the audience to my work and the universality of our human emotions. Although my paintings represent personal allegories, they are meant to point to a certain emotion. These emotions are usually processed as memories and run the gamut from elation, to loss, to wonderment; anything that makes me question myself, my integrity, my place. Through these memories I create dream-like spaces where objects lose their literal meaning and instead become metaphors in a non-linear narrative. These objects are open to personal interpretation. We all create our own memory of certain objects, connect them to place, to time, and most importantly to emotions. This emotive connect to things is interesting to investigate as well as to challenge. My work is an externalization of the emotional responses I have in my relationships, with friends, and family, my working life, my sense of belonging, or not belonging at all. They are very much a self portrait, finding my place. The space that I create for the figures, is recontextualized to reveal this struggle. It is not necessary for the viewer to literally re-experience what I am metaphorically representing but rather relate to an overall feeling in their own personal experience.

Nice!  Then, officially congratulations!  I got married, too!  In May of last year.. It's kind of the best.  Glad to hear everything's going great!

I... JUST got that comment you left me in May of last year about seeing if I still had any work from your classes.  (I think I still do, by the way!)  I am sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.  I kind of forgot that the internet existed, apparently.  Hope all is well!  If I can help with anything in the future, let me know!

There's something different about your last name.  Congratulations! (If you got married, congrats.. OR, on the other hand, congratulations on taking your name back!  I think I covered all of my bases.)
