The unending possiblilites and challenges of textures and color inspire my paintings.I pair individual fabrics and textures together based on personal, tactile, and experiential memories to create my imagery. These memories are composed and translated through visual textures, undulating forms, and distinct, limited color harmonies. The fluid movement and scale of the work allows a personal intimacy between my subject and my process. I become enveloped in the memories, subtle shifts in color, the technical application of paint and the minute, labor intensive details that drive me as a painter.
