    Artist Statement

    My practice explores representation within Painting to test how it may contribute to ones understanding of reality. Working within the expanded field of Painting, through its pictorial and physical qualities, I investigate how observation and memory can be used to depict objects in relation to space, using the shadow as a bridge between their representational and physical being.  The imagery in my work is derived from daily observations and recordings; the depiction of everyday objects, furnishings, and the shadows they cast.
