Artist Statement

When walking across a sandy beach, shells sting our feet. Still we continue, despite the discomfort, the underlying anxiety, the fleeting imagination that something bad is going to happen. A cut perhaps. Every shell, every prickly sensation, every disturbance, the sand between our toes. 

   The repetitive irritations and unavoidable inconveniences in our lives are too small to avoid, yet too big to ignore. Placing unrelated abstract and figurative elements together is an act of subtle disruption. I press hard, the lines tremble. They are scribbled furiously and carelessly as I am lining and relining the edges of a clear primed canvas. A canvas frame, seemingly crooked, creates confusion and provides a setting for the awkwardness. Instability is the inevitable element from which the viewer cannot escape; it is part of each moment.
