My paintings are constructed with drips of house paint collaged on panel. I build compositions through layering scribbled marks influenced by naïve drawings and abstract gestures. Through the manipulation of texture, layering, and color, I create a painted surface that must be viewed at a distance and through close inspection. My work interrogates the space between the real and the simulated, the arbitrary and the intentional, and the ironic and sincere. I am interested in the interplay of marks that are energetic and joyful that also function as a lie.
