Artist Statement
When viewed from different angles, everyday moments can become transfigured, revealing the depths of layers within. My brushstrokes and palette knife work indicate the range of emotions in the subject, the differing levels of thickness and transparency of paints and glazes reveal complexity, and the range of colors in my collection show the delight that I take in momentary glimpses of beauty. I take inspiration from stained glass panels and how they transfigure their subjects as light hits from various angles. Like these sacred windows, my paintings are intended to reveal both the intended subject and the deeper universal beauty that I hope viewers can relate with.
