The mind is full of desires our ego inclines us to pursue. I use oil paint to confront these desires and to suspend them between fantasy and reality. Much like the buildup and structure of a drawing reveals itself over time, I use the works to comprehend convoluted social structures as well as my role and relationships to them. I look to art history, portraiture, and the erotic as well as couture, carpets, and kink. xoxo
