Artist Statement
Gestural marks, pseudo close-ups and aerial views juxtaposed with semi-articulated figures are used to create neo-surrealistic land and seascapes charged with vivid, emotional associations, yet intangible and elusive. My work is about composing abstractions that signify and describe place as a space, both occupied and internalized, that is in constant flux. Working in layers has always been at the core of my process for creating visual structures because it facilitates exploring relationships across time and between consciousness, memory, and lived experience whether in painting, printmaking or sculptural mediums.​​​​​​​
