My primary medium is painting, and I also draw, collage and make creatures from found objects. For the past several years I have been preoccupied with the human body, internal and external worlds and drawing out transient states and private experiences, making the intangible flesh. Having used art as a way of understanding and processing my experience for virtually my whole life, recently I have begun to move into abstraction, experimenting with textures and more spontaneous mark making. Not knowing what the painting is or what it means is both terrifying and liberating.
