Everything in this world is responding to human attention. I am working through a narrative rooted deep within me. My paintings are inspired by the weight of family trauma that is passed down from generation to generation. This includes my own emotional trauma and psychological states, as well as my perspective I have of others emotional sensibilities. Although I consider my work autobiographical, it also has the power of the universal. My practice illustrates emotional and psychological mental states. These can be described, or discussed through image, form and color. They do not need to seek descriptive words or explanations. The figure has the capacity to present internal struggles. I often depict a solitary figure with a sense of power and perseverance in a foreboding, apocalyptic landscape. For me, what matters most is to represent the importance of light and dark in ourselves as humans. The absolute critical point is that our freedom to be sick becomes our teacher.
