I have a varied artistic background, beginning with street art and including everything from printmaking to metal sculpture and graphic design. My artistic process has grown to encompass elements of each way of working, with encaustic painting being my primary technique.
I approach my work as a series of edits to an ongoing monologue in which the boundaries between memory, fiction and dreams are permeable. The titles of my works are often personally significant. Some recount specific events and locations, while others reference songs or elements of dreams. Presented together as a collection, my paintings recall pivotal moments of transition through the abstraction of symbols and layered references to time and place.
