"My paintings mirror the multifaceted and complex nature of the individual. I place a singular subject in a fragmented environment that is a surreal mixture of realism, impressionism, and abstraction. Like a collage or mosaic, each painted fragment is both distinct and unique, and an extension of the whole. These bits of divergent elements converge into something singular, and fragments that would shift and shake and fall from each other are held still for a moment, bound together with threads of color. Color makes the piece whole."
