My painting is an intimate journal. Ordinary moments of life become etched in my consciousness and these memories become my personal history, which I interact with and respond to through my paintings. Colors, representing the specific emotions I experienced, become a way for me to reinterpret the memories. Recalling the ambience of a specific time and a specific space is what leads to the beginning of each painting. The subject matter of each painting is filled with infinite mundane events.
