I make paintings using an arrangement of shapes to construct images of moments I experience during daily activities. I capture observations using photographs, later comparing them to my memory of the time, resulting in modified representations of specific spaces. The essential components of each image are discovered through building up layers of paint while constantly adding and subtracting visual elements and details. Color, proportions and perspectival elements are revised until the image most closely reflects my perception. I am constantly aware of the distinct colors and light within each environment and how these atmospheric differences alter the way we experience and interact with the urban landscape. The paintings are visual responses to my past and current homes and stem from basic encounters that are commonly overlooked. Since returning to Los Angeles in 2015, I have been focusing on representing the magical light and diverse environments of this city, resulting in portraits of viewpoints and neighborhoods that I frequent and love.
