Artist’s Statement

I think of my paintings as waking dreams.

I construct tableaus to paint from. Source materials include: found photographic images, miniature models, my own constructions and my imagination. I often search out found surfaces to paint on (a book cover, metal sign, paper) that already contain words, colors, or markings to play off of.
