The cast of fictional and non-fictional characters who inhabit my paintings, prints, and sculptures, exist on a plane where nonsense and meaningfulness come together. Within confined environments, these characters narrate a broad spectrum of emotion.
Though not necessarily obvious, my work most often reflects what is happening about me. Observation is my inspiration, be it of human relationship, animal behavior, or political climate. I enjoy humor and try to maintain a playfulness in my work whether of light or serious intent.
When painting, I often think as would a printmaker, and vice versa. My studio houses materials for both 2 and 3 dimensional projects which have a way of influencing me as I work. The scenarios I create, imagine a range of feeling, from contentedness to anxiety. The viewer can usually fill in the blanks.
