Artist Statement

My current body of work is based on the remnants that exist everywhere in life; a layer of paint is akin to a single personal experience. When some or all of an individual layer is painted over, a small trace is left behind - a shadow, a shape, an edge. Some traces are obvious and noticeable, others take minute observation to discover, but the final piece wouldn’t be the same without them. The new shapes and colors created using a combination of glazes and optical mixing morph with each successive layer of paint, much like a person changes and grows as new experiences overlap and mesh with previous ones.
