Artist Statement


My paintings use the avenues of figure, still life and landscape to implant ordinary images with psychological meanings. This body of work focuses on an implied human presence through depictions of a collection of books. The groupings of books, stacked or on shelves, act as a stand in for one person’s accumulated knowledge and personality.  Some stacks of books remain blank: full of potential or conversely, impenetrable. Other groups of books include written words and imagery to act as clues into meaning.  Linking these symbols to an image steers the interpretation away from literal depictions and towards a psychological response to the combination of objects and meaning.
