In painting I’ve discovered deeply buried stories that I must tell. I draw from memories, which are often incomplete or distorted, yet always infused with intense emotions, from terror to euphoria. While working I think about others going through similar experiences and my heart aches to ease their despair. I paint for them. When someone sees my work, I hope they connect it to their own narrative and are incited to feel both their vulnerability and their strength.
