Through painting, I explore the subtlety and solitude found in often-mundane situations and places. In careful observations of light, shadow, and color, I perceive the deceptively complex and beautiful worlds that surround us.

These paintings depict the house where I grew up, common family gatherings, patches of ground, and stripped down landscapes. I am drawn to subjects that allow me to ruminate on their subtleties without the intermediaries of direct narrative or symbolism. Through careful and sustained looking, I try to find a fundamental character of the world around me and to reflect that character into the paintings.
