Much of my current work begins as photo-realistic paintings that slowly become abstracted as I transition to memory. I look for a sense of being in the moment and brushing it away. There is something attractive about losing the initial subject and painting from feeling and gut to recompose the piece. The melding of subject and foreground creates an atmosphere of uncertainty and tension, which is balanced by a soft muted palette. My working process is very intuitive – colors and images wash over each other until they find a place of rest.
