When I paint, I want my bones to feel the temperature of colors shift in space, my eyes to leave a trail of a visual journey, and my fingerprints to yearn to compare the textures of a deeply layered surface. My work is rooted in observation, yet converses with my respect for historical connections, playful memories, and judicious intuition. With every illustration, I research the work of artists I admire- especially those with Expressionistic tendencies. While studying their colors, tonalities, mark-making, I ask those artists questions about their paintings and assemble imaginary answers to define my new images. While keeping myself in a curious mentality, I am better able to sculpt and guide the paint with a loosened control to allow it to become the essential clues and symbols I wish to convey. I hope to leave the viewer- or reader- with a desire to infer its meaning and make their own connections.
