Artist's Statement

My work is about humor, irony, and taking a new look at average moments.  The most important works of art, in my estimation, are the ones that make you feel something viscerally either to the positive or negative, but never nonplussed. One of the ways I work to achieve that is by showing the audience ordinary moments of time we all experience in a way they have not considered previously. “The Cold”, as an example, is a triptych I did of my husband sneezing. A scene that most of us would consider “gross”, I found interesting and beautiful. There are many moments where we consider ourselves unattractive and yet we are at our most fascinating. Additionally, I work to create images that are serious paintings not based on the subject or view point, but because of the feeling they evoke. “Teenage Negativity”, simply put, is my daughter reclining on the couch, painted photo realistically, in the negative. It is a literal portrait of a teenager being negative. That’s both funny and ironic. In my series of paintings, “Upper Lipholstery”, depict my daughters wearing either an antique bowler or top hat with a wax mustache. While these paintings are clearly not meant to make a “serious statement of great import” they evoke a strong sense of joy and reverie to the viewer. It is my observation that we have fewer opinions in life than we do feelings. If I can make the viewer actively feel something, I’ve created art that is worthy.​
