I am interested in the way light streams into an interior space, changing it and the objects it hits for a quick
moment. The sunstream magically transforms whatever is in its path and makes it exceptional. These liminal spaces are both real and remembered. They also act as a vehicle for applying paint.
My paintings are built up in layers of oil paint and charcoal lines. I may also apply pastel and wax
markers or use cold wax as a primary medium. Surfaces are scraped, turned and reworked. Through this process, they reveal a history of the workings, as in a palimpsest.
