I work with stories and images of my past, painting from memory and experience rather than photographs. I am trying to find how they are connected with my present and understand how my present decisions are linked to my memories.
Patterns and rich three-dimensional textures occupy the surface of my work as much as color does, converting my art into a visual experience that invites people to explore the piece up close both visually and tactilely.
Through painting I discover how both memory and reality interact: how they repel and attract each other; how they mix and remain separated. Each time I paint, I remember more, I learn more from my experiences: both the good and the bad ones.
