Artist Statement

I make paintings centering around my daily life. I paint what I know or think I know about the everyday experience of being alive. The paintings tend to explore the intimacy of domestic space The quieter familiar and private moments at home or abroad. I paint self portraits and portraits of my husband and child. They reflect part of the ritual or routine of life.  This is the world of my home, wherever that maybe. I work from photos but also from the memory of those moments. It is what is there and sometimes from what I want to be there. Like any work from life there are a lot of truths and untruths.
