My paintings are observational paintings of simple ordinary objects that are so familiar that we might ignore them at first glance. A closer look at things in my immediate surroundings. A rock. A piece of tape. A scrap of paper. A passing cloud. Objects that when painted life size can seem monumental, precious or intimate, rather than small.

I work with a limited palette, simple subject matter and little background information. Can emotional content still be conveyed? The self-portraits are an ongoing investigation.
