I strive convey the “in-between” spaces and arouse in us a forcible feeling of the uncanny. I paint emotions and impressions in a traditional figurative style. My paintings can be easily described, a woman singing wearing a swim hat, a man with his head wrapped in cloth, but none the less these paintings have an absurd quality to them in their deviational and juxtaposing ideas.
I want to create an intimate and uncomfortable space, to narrate a story untold in full. I’m concerned with how our public face masks so much information. In this digital age what we choose to reveal, and what we hide intrigues me.  it’s the allure of the hidden that inspires my work.
