mixed-media, surrealism, figurative

My painting process is inspired by people's histories, memories and experiences. Events are obliterated from our memory, or only glimpses are remembered. We are continually recording layers of history and occasionally we can "bump" into these past memories or ghosts/spirits. My work at times surreal, are referenced from my travels, experiences and dreams.
I'm intrigued with the concept of spirituality and our place in the universe. Is there karma? is there another dimension (s) or other world? The "what if...?"  These are some of the profound, interesting questions, the billions of possibilities life poses, which inspires me to capture.
