Artist Statement
If you stop what you are doing and look as far away as you can, even if it is just in the other room, or if you are lucky enough to be outside, look as far away as you can. There are so many things/stuff/objects in your way of seeing far into the distance. Those distractions, objects, patterns and the smallest opening that lets you see even further are what my paintings are about. They are about the things in the way of seeing as far as you can. Sometimes these objects in my paintings are from memories, memories of the color of a room or shape of a hill. The combination of the struggle to see in the distance and flashes of memories make up the stories within my paintings. Out of these thoughts comes work that looks almost abstract, but in my eyes the combination of shapes and colors have stories.
