Artist Statement

Tapping into my memory, I start at the front door of each of the significant homes I have lived or spent time in, drawing every detail I can recall. I work room-by-room, corner -to -corner overlapping each view. The more discernible objects and areas are made permanent with paint, while those left in chalk represent the fragile memories flirting with disappearance. I struggle to capture the minute details of each room as I think I experienced them.
