I am obsessed with objects, beautiful, pleasurable and unexpected things. Food, fashion and flowers are my art muses. I am fascinated by their formal qualities and the deeply personal, emotional hold they have over every crevice of my mind. Through line, color and paint, I strive to make a successful painting. I fetishize oil painting materials. I can go on and on about its history, its specific smells, its buttery texture, its transformative quality, the drum-like texture of a freshly primed linen canvas, the perfect corner fold? . Process and the act of seeing are very important to me. It is not about what I want, but realizing what the painting needs. The end result should make me want to hug myself to bed every night.
