    ARTIST STATEMENT:
    "My paintings are an intimate journal and meditations on self-discovery. They grow from journal entries and the world around me. I keep a brief diary of daily life, and it is the everyday, mundane things that inspire me most. Each painting contains things that remind me of my personal experience and has a story that I want to tell, so I zoom in to the focal point and crop the parts that I don't need. The traces of my memories show that I have enjoyed a remarkable life. I strive to make each of my paintings a reflection of my perception of the moment. Since these ordinary moments have been so strongly etched on my consciousness, each moment of my life becomes an event and a personal history as soon as I express my daily life as a painting. The memories are telling me something about what I remember in my life when I work and interact with them. For instance, in "Keep Doing It," I draw from the experience of reuniting with my dog and making myself feel comfortable after work. In that moment I feel peace and relief, which is not very exciting or extraordinary, but is still satisfying. The space responds to my relaxed and sedated feeling as I enter a more natural state. "
