Each of my paintings is an observation; a connection with how objects reflect daily human interactions. I start with a moment that I experience a feeling from, and through the act of painting, I am discovering exactly what that feeling is. I am actively investigating through this process, my perceptions of moments, interactions, and objects in relation to the collective experience. This is a constant exploration of how to portray collective perception that encourages a deeper understanding of individuality. I believe in order for us to unite, we must find these common understandings so that we can begin to view one another as equal. I wish to dig below the surface with hopes that my viewers may dive even further.
