My paintings celebrate things we have in common, like an obsession with a film character, or a universal experience captured in a vintage photograph. When my mother developed dementia, I became interested in exploring the concept of memory. The vintage photos I paint often mirror our own daily lives and remind us of a shared history and the importance of telling our stories. 

My favorite made-up word is “sonder” …. the realization that each passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. My paintings invite conversations to reminisce & share stories from the past. They help connect us to each other through our shared history. Sonder (from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows
