Growth and decay have greatly influenced my role as creator, observer
and intermediary. Collage and the transferring of photographic elements
obscure the surface along with veils of paint, producing ambiguous,
visually rich subject matter. Each mark on the canvas, whether
unintentional or deliberate, forces the painting into a new context
that is non-linear and shifting. The emergence of recognizable images
or gestures is intended to provoke a sense of familiarity that echoes
throughout the paintings.
