Artist Statement

I am interested in the unwanted and dismissed. Objects are both stumbled upon and purposefully chosen. Thoughts, memories and past experiences are scavenged through in an effort to find meaning and uncover connections. My paintings document this search. The set-up allows me to object to preconceived ideas and assumptions; challenge an image or impression that is forced upon an object or relationship.

Everything has meaning. Seemingly random objects we encounter, no matter how unceremoniously, hold a flood of associations and truths buried in the sub conscience. The only way to tease them out is through sensitive observation and suspension of prejudice.
