Artist Statement: I see my paintings as archeology in reverse. An archeologist reveals the details of how a people lived by carefully removing layer after layer of dirt and artifacts from a site. Similarly, in my works patterns and other painted artifacts are offered to the viewer in layers. For me, my paintings evoke the slow, accumulated and interactive effects of weather, erosion and the visual marks of generations of peoples' lives playing themselves out on a wall.
