The smallest things are often what connect us as human beings. 
Moments of anticipation, tenderness, and personal triumph are realities we share. 

These paintings are based on memories, both personal and borrowed. 
They are an attempt to explore a collective human experience.

Details and features remain ambiguous, inviting the viewer to seek something of themselves in the work.

The figure (human and animal) has provided a generous vehicle for color, form and surface to evolve. 
Paint and wax are layered, dripped and scraped to create a sense that the subject is still emerging…   
 still 'becoming'.
