Working from life, and personal photographs, my work is an attempt to capture the exceptional within a simple, seemingly, ordinary moment. An investigation into the “every-day” reveals a paradoxical and fascinating complexity. My use of brush strokes, color, and texture of paint are an effort to arrive at an intimate and heightened sense of a moment or an object. The variations of whites in a painted wall, the color of a discarded can, the shape of a shadow beneath a car, or the variety of textures at the meeting of nature and man-made object are what, to me, make life rich and exciting. By capturing the specificity of detail in the every-day things that surround us, I hope to communicate something universally true. Something that resonates with me, and with the viewer.
