“My painting is rooted in my passion for color and my fascination with moving lines into shapes. I paint to recreate specific memories. My motivation when beginning a painting is to reinvent and exaggerate these recollections through color and geometry. I use preliminary drawings as a reference, and then reduce details to a minimum on canvas, allowing the image to resonate, and be open for exploration. The decisions I make are informed by light and shadow, and how these elements direct color relationships and compositions.”
