There is a brief moment in any given day between where I need to be and where I want to be that lingers. This moment is neither romantic nor nostalgic but demands my attention. The scene, which elicits this moment, allows me to reflect, reorganize and ultimately compose an image. I carefully observe the environment my daily routines expose me to through my practice of drawing and painting. The familiar experiences we encounter every day inspire and compel me to translate them to a two-dimensional picture plane. I am interested in the specific qualities that transcend the mundane and elevate a space to place.
