dream and reason


“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.”

                                                    -Gabriel García Márquez

Inspired by the literary movement of Magical Realism and the long human tradition of visual storytelling, my work is a study in the various ways by which we perceive and shape our own realities. 


Complex, mysterious narratives, open to the viewers’ interpretation, are created with the juxtaposition of collage and painted images.


My process incorporates paper ephemera, layers of dry media drawing, glazes and opaque oil paint which alternately reveals and obscures the layers beneath.

In these mixed media works I explore the tenuous nature of memory and dreams. I also examine

the ways in which humans interact and conflict with nature. I approach these subjects to

gain a deeper insight into ourselves.
