"Paint is obsessing me. Its color, its texture, the way it slides across and adheres to a surface. Most alluring though, is what it conceals and reveals. I build up a painting in layers, creating a history. Between the layers I erase and abstract until a dialogue of emotion emerges. I find the process of adding and subtracting similar to managing information, and the delicate balance between disorder and structure that I test akin to the act of juggling life. My paintings are an expression of how I perceive and synthesize the most intimate spaces in the world around me."
