BIO

The work is inspired by an engagement with play and making peace with uncertainty.  I work experimentally, using a digital video to explore painting.  I use sound and moving images in non-traditional ways to reverse expectations of horror and comedy. 

I am drawn to the whimsical nature of self-discovery.  I construct repeating narratives, often depicting varying scenarios of serenity, silliness, and reflection.

The act of painting for me is often cathartic, and serves as a form of personal self-exploration. The imagery often represents the oscillation between the grueling and playful process of self-discovery within the work.
