Many artists trade in their perception for a machine. Although photography can help us to further understand our individual vision, when the camera begins to shackle our view, the image loses human interaction. I work from life, utilizing the memories I hold while depicting the objects and people around me. When painting and drawing people, I study a person's specific anatomy as well as my relationship to his or her psyche. And just as light and temperature shift, I am interested in how these characteristics change as I work. The objects in my environment are also a source of inspiration to me. Whether its surface is shellacked or worn, its color saturated or faded, its structure intact or collapsed, an object has a visual history. Furthermore, it has a rich history connected to each person who comes into contact with it. I wish to examine both of these histories.
