Artist Statement

 

My work is a continual exploration of the relationship between memory  and  experience.  I’m engaged in how the space of childhood resurfaces and defines our sense of self.  By suggesting  a  child’s point of view, my narratives touch upon imagined fears, ambivalence  or body awareness. I'm interested in what is hidden than what is seen, in the reality behind appearances; this pairing is  an important component to understanding  my work.  I am so drawn to the  honesty of childhood emotions and how it imprints itself  on  the depth of our  being. It’s the recognition of this emotional experience I try to elicit in my drawing and painting.
