"They evolve over time. Process is very important: mark-making, layering, covering up and uncovering, scraping, sanding, erasing-all help to create a rich archaeological feel."

Artist's Statement
These pieces reflect on the passage of time, and the internal events that change and shape us. The paintings reveal how, over time, memories are given broader scope and are incorporated into an ongoing abstract narrative. These are nature-based and light infused visual meditations. The structure of this series encourages an interchange, and a narrative emerges. The paintings explore what happens when significant moments over a long period of time become incorporated into the fabric of our lives. Color and mark-making are the foundation of this work. Layering, sanding, erasing, and scraping reveal over time “their own order... the continuous thread of revelation”
