An exploration of the act of observation, the medium of painting, and most critically the link between the two drives my work. Refining the bridge between seeing and transcribing is what I practice. Spontaneity and directness are driving elements. In painting I continue to learn about the nature and potential of observation. I have learned that perception expands when ruminating on the everyday. I choose my palate through observation. I think of my colors as a concentrate of what I see in reality. My work is representational but not necessarily realistic. Above all I am exploring the act of observation and what is revealed through it.
