Statement: My interest is in painting/documenting things of today, especially the overlooked and familiar aspects of everyday life – scenes we pass by everyday or people we know, but rarely take the time to fully consider. In the chaos of daily life, I believe we all take the simple and familiar for granted. Sometimes they are the very things we come to remember and even miss.
