My practice is built around process; mark making, repetition, accumulation, erasure and the viscosity of the paint itself. I’m also concerned with my physical relationship to paint, including the motions inherent in the process of mark making.

The repetitive practice of laying down multiple layers of media, drawing between the layers, and repeating the procedure, makes physical the thought process itself. The tension between decipherment and embodiment informs and inspires my inquiry.
