Artist’s Statement

My work shines a light on the minuscule— yet necessary— pieces that create life and experience. How each day, one at a time, adds up to a lifetime. How individual cells, when working together allow a body to function. I am amazed time and time again at the ability of many small parts working together to make something significant. I use a simple cellular form to represent these small parts in my paintings. These forms flow like currents, intersect and move together to contribute to something larger than themselves.

My most recent work is focused on time. More specifically, using the cellular form as a measurement of time. I count each cellular shape I paint, one cell for one day, until the painting is a visual record of years. My paintings become a meditation on the accumulation of time, showing how some days fall into the background and others are more prominent. They reflect how time feels, rather than how time is measured.
