My paintings have a childlike appearance, however their context is multi-layered and complex with subject matter pertaining to family life, self discovery, body image and social interactions. While simple on the surface, they contain vibrant, sometimes intense emotional undertones, creating a visceral experience for the viewer. Through the process of taking my sketchbook wherever I go, whether to a party, music show, or the hospital, my work is a direct response to the environment and the information I find there. Raw and uncontrived, the end result of my process is an image that is highly authentic, ‘grabbing’ the viewer. I am most interested in people, what makes them tick and the everyday experiences of life.
