Ophelia, 2005
Oil on canvas
36 x 48 inches

My paintings, drawings, and digital prints pay a certain attention to Surrealism, but my work is not an expression of the subconscious. Rather, it reveals my own hyper-consciousness.

I draw into texts and found images (primarily from nature), allowing their original purpose and design to inform my process. These images trigger memories; inorganic and anatomical elements are incorporated into abstract landscapes, and forms are suggested through the running and splattering of paint.

An increased self-awareness emerges as I struggle to find connections between what I can and can't control, between the real and the imaginary, the natural and artificial.
