My paintings capture an evidence of my presence and traces of humanity in my spaces. In New York we talk about, seek out, and celebrate space in an obsessive and desperate way. I explore the intimate trails we carve through our domestic worlds and the often fickle notion of what home is. I want the disjointed nature of the spaces, whether within one canvas or across two, to emphasize that despite the celebration of my sacred rooms, whether home or studio, apprehension lurks in anticipation of the chaos of the exterior world. Life can be traced and my story told through the portraits of my spaces as I capture the way things are left, and the way we let things fall apart.
