I call my work psychological landscapes. In a way, the roads and houses are always something more than just roads and houses. The cracks, drains, shadows, rips and glitter are stand-ins for emotional states, or symbolic of greater themes of life.

I am interested in communicating what it feels like to be in our world in this time. The more personal I seem to make my paintings, the more they connect with others.
