My body of work includes five series of paintings: Family Portrait, Unpacked, Corners, Fractured Spaces, and Day to Day. Throughout the creation of this body of work, I have explored and implemented various techniques to create paintings that suggest an intuitive sense of time and place. These paintings aim to convey the experience of domestic space from multiple points of view, depicting imagery that reflects the dependability of the mundane and the daily experiences of cohabitation. My thinking and methods are informed by the writings of Sam Harris, J. Macgregor Wise, Rosalind Krauss, and Jordan Wolfson, as well as the paintings of Richard Diebenkorn, Henri Matisse, Paul Cezanne, and David Hockney. My work is a meditation on how small moments in our lives reveal that which is essential and meaningful.
