My work is inspired by the quiet and random beauty that is is found in nature. Through an exploration of process and material the paintings become conceptual studies of time, memory and emotion. Navigating between reference and meaning, while merging painting and drawing, my paintings pursue a direct and intuitive form of expression. I strive for a simplicity that is poetic while still capturing a layered complexity that can be personal metaphor but also resonate with familiar and wondrous beauty.
