I’m an artist and educator, currently located in New York. Having moved very frequently throughout my life, my paintings investigate memory and the American landscape. Using rich colors and loose painterly brushstrokes, I explore the sensory quality of spaces I move through in my daily life: their colors, textures, floors, ceilings, and skies. These subjects range from the mundane to the miraculous, the grocery store to the gothic cathedral. I believe that the world does not look like photographs--that is only one way of seeing the world. In other words, my work is about looking at things.
