My work is inspired by the visual clatter of the mundane places I know best, the domestic environment, or the tilted landscape of my weekend garden. The paintings are spontaneous and intuitive; I work without a plan and embrace the happy accident. With collage-like scraps of form and color I build invented spaces where I reimagine, reinvent, and repair. Like selective memories, I retell my story with embellishments and edits. The paintings are an exploration of the inaccurate and personal.
