Biography

 

“I like how the experience of being in water reminds us of our smallness, and I try to express this in my work by examining how the water distorts and shifts the body. I am fascinated by the challenge of capturing something constantly in motion and presenting it with the medium of paint. My pieces are also about time; as a reference, I paint from photographs with a short exposure, and the brief split second captured is then painstakingly transferred to canvas over many many hours.”
