In my paintings and drawings I have tried, using representational methods, to fix moments in time and freeze the suggestive attitudes that figures show to each other. Within these designs I have searched for the storytelling qualities embedded in everyday objects, the memories of meaning that linger in accidental, mundane settings and the atmospheric associations of essential gestures.

We spend so much of our lives navigating a sea of complex and conflicting signals, distracted and frustrated by random obstacles to understanding; doing our best along the way to avoid the conflict and sadness that combine to defeat our best intentions. Our task is a harvest of confusion, winnowing kernels of value from the cascade of screaming chaff – finding in the residue a hook to hold memory, an anchor to slow loss.
