Abstract

My visual vocabulary is drawn from the language of fairytales and dreams and includes animals, birds, tambourines, scrolled railings, clumps of flowers, clocks, bubbles, and people. I include symbols that resonate for me or, through its shape, solve a formal compositional problem. The images are pieced together in a collage-like manner and juxtaposed without regard to real world concerns of place, size, and scale. The resulting stories have a surreal appearance. My goal is to create drawings and paintings that reveal a personal, expressive reality.
