I find that I am increasingly drawn toward the intimate but everyday moments we share. There is much going on during these ordinary interactions. The mundane is important. Even those who dwell in the largest cities live out their lives and derive their meaning from interactions with friends and loved ones. That is how we search for meaning in our lives and how we share joy and sadness. As an artist, I try to examine these interactions in an honest and straightforward way. There is a sense of ambiguity and suspended time apparent in my paintings, but life is often ambiguous and our stories rarely have clear endings.
