As a painter, I am exploring concepts of memory, perception and the psychological space between them. Using the human figure my paintings investigate how memory and genetic trauma inform identity. My recent work emphasizes duality through mirroring, erasing and overlapping figures to create tension within a sense of calmness. My work has been shown in the Bay Area and throughout the United States, most recently with a solo show at Ridley Gallery at Sierra College.
