i make paintings that can take everything i bring to them and turn it into something surprising and beautiful: messiness, confusion, pain, joy, beauty. most of all beauty, especially when it’s unexpected.
the paintings teach me and the process changes me. i write about this a lot.
sometimes what it takes to get to a quiet, empty place - to begin - astounds me. sometimes i think i am going to paint but i sit still instead. i am learning to listen better.
i love when things come together and making paintings feel like magic.
i live in the East End of Portland, Maine.
