ARTIST STATEMENT

 

My work is incredibly personal and complex, so for me, the physical process of painting is a way for me to refer to personal fears.  I will address a subject, whether it be tarantulas or necrotizing flesh, for as long as I need to ruminate on it, the result of which always ends up comprising an entire series devoted to that particular subject matter.  I am drawn to the dichotomy of attraction/ repulsion, so I use the delicacy of watercolour and gouache to depict my often grotesque subject matter.
