. These paintings were heavily influenced by Henri Fantin-Latour
When I begin a painting, Im usually drawn to basic, simple forms; eggs, paper, trees, buildings. I look to paint objects and landscapes that are non-specific and have a quality of anonymity to them. Elements are often reduced to the most essential and details are sometimes eliminated. My paintings are not literal recordings of nature or the world around me; these works are private meditations on a specific moment. Deliberate and sometimes obsessive, these paintings often carry on and exist within a series, building on and reinterpreting what was before. I try to create pieces that are expressive and reluctant, silent yet certain, and in between I often find tension to be further explored.BIOGRAPHY
