Artist Statement

I have come to think of my paintings as views of a place where magic reveals itself differently than it does in this world. The moments I like to find are remote and still, familiar but oddly so. The landscapes are anxiously awaiting or blushing in the aftermath of an unseen event. They are descriptions of secret experiences, embarrassing feelings, passages from books I like, and things caught in the corner of my eye. I hope the work is strange and suspenseful like the excitement of exploring a new place, and the thrill of knowing you are drifting back into a frightening dream.

At the same time, the paintings are a way of looking at things I remember, or have forgotten, without relying on the picture in my head. They are, simultaneously, diagrams for understanding events from the past, and puzzles to decode experiences not yet had.
