“I paint the daily surroundings that normally go unnoticed—a glimpse of the bookshelf, the manhole cover I walk over on my route to the grocery store, my pliers hanging on a pegboard.
My paintings are at once rooted in the unique experiences of my own life, and in conversation with the larger history of American painting. If you’re an art nerd like me, you may notice some cheeky nods to our painting forefathers; Agnes Martin, Franz Kline, Barnett Newman. I make every mark by hand, without shortcuts. This practice is one part meditation, one part Yankee work ethic.”
