Artist Statement Submitted 2014

There’s value in intentionally wandering aimlessly. My paintings, taken individually, are narrative works. Snapshots of characters relishing and struggling with the conflicts of their everyday lives. When the scope is widened to include a series of paintings, they become an exploration of an individual character. Their Motivations, fears, and desires come to life and they are put in different situations. Widen the scope enough, and my own exploration comes into view. Just as my individual characters seek growth, I’m wandering through the dense forest of art. Instead of a compass pointing in a specific direction, I’m only looking to go deeper into the woods. That is where the real mysteries are.
