I visually explore concepts of memory, time, and place, creating abstract paintings and drawings that evoke recollection through mark, surface, and color. Each piece is a marker, a biographical trace of my home, its walls, and the neighborhood outside of them. I translate the palpable psychological charge of these intimate spaces into smooth laborious surfaces that conjure corporeal sensations of touch and matter. The nuanced surface of the paintings are greatly influenced by their environment. Taking on conditions, they begin to participate, slowly releasing their secrets.
