STATEMENT

I paint in loose technique that seeks accuracy and expressiveness. Mid-century architecture, vintage photos and classic tv shows are prominent influences. Themes of time are without longing for nostalgia, but as familiar and beautiful within the present. As a result, I am interested in studies of mundane details of our spaces and surroundings. I look for beauty in what might otherwise be overlooked.
