I attempt to paint subtle hidden truths of the human condition by unlearning, excavating and remembering these truths which are personal yet collective. I am fascinated by the many layers of ourselves and the process of what we choose to reveal or not, to ourselves and one another. Discovering both sides of the spectrum, both conscious and unconscious, in a constant process of learning to “unlearn” coping mechanisms and subconscious programming created early in life. ​ I show this process through intentional layering, mark making and specific color choices. I use transparent layers to represent what we reveal to others or ourselves and opaque for concealment. I push the boundaries of value to show both aspects of our consciousness, embracing all to further evolve as individuals. With the intentional use of various marks I communicate the dynamic and remarkable human condition that is always changing and ever expanding.
