As an artist, I am drawn to the metaphor of darkness and light, that light is available to us in any situation if we only have the courage to look for it. In my work I map emotional terrain within layers upon layers of paint, using deep marks, lines and texture to add to the complex history beneath the surface of my paintings. I will then sand or scrape back these layers to reveal the mysteries waiting underneath. I believe this process represents the idea we are all made perfectly imperfect and through these imperfections lies the light and beauty of our souls.
