My recent oil and mixed media works depict curious, dreamy scenes. Sites explored while traveling abroad and places visited in my daily experience contribute to these painted fictions. Memories, imaginings, and source photographs are fused, morphing into fantastical abstract landscapes.

Incorporating transfers of my own photography, I attempt to blur boundaries between media; I embrace mysterious transitions between the photographic transfers and the realistic application of paint amid more abstract forms.

These unlikely spaces often revisit familiar landscape tropes - with oceans, bridges, rivers, desert terrain, and city skylines meeting my less literal visual language of paint swaths, arcs, and floating forms. The images are intentionally ambiguous, leaving space for open interpretation and narrative.

Celestial, terrestrial, and aquatic motifs are present throughout the series. Ideas of regeneration, cycles, and the search for visual and metaphorical structure within ephemeral, fluid spaces seem to be recurring considerations.
