Diary 2015 – 2020
My work revolves around an intimate and personal exploration of life -its energy, delicacy, playfulness, and mystery. I seek to find moments of amazement in my familiar – sometimes domestic – world, in views that I feel convey a transcendent quality of wonder, an allusion of the vastness of life. Nature, ordinary scenes of my family life, my childhood haunts, and investigation of my subconscious influences are my main themes.
