My paintings are born of reflection. It is the feeling of nostalgia and the act of longing which grounds me and fills the void left within me by the absence of a personal faith. As the present routines and uncertainties remove me further from a connection that I hold dear, it is through the act and practice of painting that I encounter my own sense of history and truth. Through the physicality of painting—in the act of retrieving scenes through paint, a type of psychic archeology is formed. Within this process, the language of revealing personal memory through a particular material with direct association to the past, inevitably evokes a specific time period for all of us in our collective memory.
