In my paintings, I invoke the playfulness of game boards and the mystery of ancient icons. Paint is brushed, stamped, repelled, stenciled, masked, washed, sanded and dotted. Colors are layered, and marks gather,  mapping the relationship of part to whole across multiple perspectives. Physical experience mixes with intangible ideas, world events, literature, memory, and dreams. Narratives spin, metaphors collide, emotions shift, and all is connected, each little piece to the other. I offer these accumulations as potential thresholds for departure, connection, and return.
