Artist Statement

My paintings represent modified conversations. Since I was a child, I have always been intrigued by the power of language. People’s choice of words, the flow of sentences, the selection of topics, these aspects of a conversation reveal so much information about one’s identity. Therefore, in context, one chooses both consciously and subconsciously most appropriate ways to engage in a conversation. By using multiple picture planes and digitally edited images, my paintings parallel the heavily curated conversations of real life.
