“I like the introspection an interior evokes. It has space, light and form, but also an identity of whose space it is. I also like the contrast of the man-made versus nature. The interior functions as a refuge, as a retreat and as a place to create.   The spaces in my paintings are mostly imagined. It allows me to just jump in with paint and work the surface and color relationships. A surreal quality is something that I look for; real but imagined. I’d like people to see it as an experience; a place they feel like they’ve been to, or would like to go.”
