Artist Statement: 
My paintings seek to reflect the strange, awkward, and tragi-comic elements of human experience. The figures in my paintings are victims of circumstance; they are often caught in vulnerable or uncomfortable situations. My paintings invite reflection on cultural norms and expectations, gender dynamics, and feelings surrounding futility or inadequacy. While evoking an underlying sense of disquiet, these paintings don’t draw conclusions, but instead present narrative possibilities that ask to be considered.
