My work is a continual search to find a place that can be easily felt. Regardless of the identity of the viewer, the paintings invite an honest, accessible visual experience. They show intimate venues that are slow and still. The viewer is given a frame to feel the space and create a place of their own within the paintings. These “places” are opportunities to understand and reevaluate a sense of identity.
As the viewer spends more time looking, their perceptions will change as the space they see becomes grand in emotional scale.
