My Most recent series, RESPITE, creates a narrative of comfort and domesticity in contemporary America. By referencing social media and candid imagery I am commenting on the way we present ourselves to other people. My paintings are created from photos and considered retrospectively in order to carry the subtle and underlying complexities of life. What I hope first and foremost is that people see the pride in every painting. I am choosing what to define in each painting and I am specific with the details. My paintings are a love letter to the people and cats in my life.
