My intent as a painter is to arrest motion on canvas by artificial means, to capture life and hold it fixed. I am interested in making paintings of personal experiences, some as I remember and others as I prefer to remember them. Referencing family photo albums, contemporary imagery, and historical photographs, I aim to create a nostalgic world I once imagined, now conceivable and constructed with paint. As I reflect on memories, I hope to bring to life a personal mythology to better understand my reality.
