"My paintings are a documentation of personal and everyday life experiences and observations. They represent a natural sanctuary for trust, self-confidence and clarity. Like any life experience, they are reminiscent of good and not so good moments convolved and transcribed in some distilled form in layers of colors, recognizable imagery, mark making, and unreadable text. We live in an era with an amazing amount of information at our fingertips and an ever-shorter time to absorb and react to changes. At times, the sheer speed of these changes challenges our sense of self and security." >>> NEXT
