“Materials are really what tweaks my brain; I’ll find something, a piece of paper or fabric that resonates with me and I have to use it. The things I make are a response to the materials first and then I think the visual catalogue of my environment that I have developed in my photo making is what helps form subject in my work. (…) I think of those works like the paintings I couldn’t make in paint.

“When an object quits my studio, it might not be accomplished. The accomplishment is achieved in its destination.

“Activated by formal abstract histories and craft techniques, I construct abstract paintings using experimental dying techniques on second hand domestic fibers. (…) This multi-media process invites the emergence new forms through formal explorations of surface, texture and mark making. The resulting frayed boundaries between mediums and pastiche address the post-medium condition of painting along with patterns of contemporary excess. Engaging with hands-on production I seek to address and explore metaphysical concerns relating to objects, causality and material relationships.” (artist’s statement)
