Artist Statement

My paintings explore themes/subjects that are a part of an ever-expanding iconography. I engage both figurative and abstract imagery that hold in common narratives that touch on psychological themes.
During my last 3-4 years in Brooklyn my paintings began to explore themes related to the environment. I feel a deep sorrow regarding human impact and inevitable distruction of life on this planet The earlier work around this theme was more naturalistic, related to climate change and extreme weather events. The work over the last couple of years, which is represented in my work on this site, takes this theme into a future when people are no longer here. In these imagined landscapes I engage the notion of earth's eventual regeneration.
