around the house

To me, traditional studios have always felt unnatural; instead, I paint wherever I am. The act of painting allows me to quietly, consciously reflect on my daily domestic life. While painting, my senses are heightened — I am able to smell more distinctly, see more clearly — and this precision can be visually captured in paint. Making a painting is a way to reckon with a mundane object and my relationship to it. My work is not only a celebration of the everyday but also a means of self-questioning: what do these subjects and moments really mean to me?
