Artist Statement

I begin a canvas using abstract and random marks. These form not only the backbone of every painting but are also a map with which to journey into each work.
Hidden behind the confusion of brushstrokes there are visual clues that I need to piece together. These eventually become narratives that make themselves more visible as I continue to paint. When the hidden story is revealed I mostly find that a personal memory is connected albeit in a form of allegory.

The subliminal imagery occurring within my work reflects a deep desire for spiritual sanctuary. However these images are not necessarily a safe haven or an escape. They form a visual dialogue between my internal and external selves. Simply put, painting as a means to a better understanding of who I was, who I am and who I could become.
