My work involves the convergence of my two backgrounds, painting and medicine. I am inspired by my daily clinical practice as an ultrasound technician as I find similarities in the course of diagnosing a patient to what I do as an artist. A back and forth questioning and answering process takes place in the production of both types of imagery, which results in the combination of my medical knowledge with my visual mark-making on the canvas.
My creative process makes reference to the sensitivity many people feel when discussing and confronting illness and entropy in the body. Through my paintings, I try to capture the range of emotions I sense from my patients as I scan them, from fear to joy and everything in between. My work is an attempt to bring attention to the idea that if we keep things in perspective we would not see the pathological processes in our bodies as something abnormal but part of the journey of life.
