My paintings map instants: wanderlust satisfied, questions answered, the skipped heartbeat and mental "whoosh!" that accompany them.  We are all basically "whoosh!" junkies.

My favorite stories to read, hear or watch are those that are full enough of details that you can practically smell them and that are crafted with love and attention, and I always try to tell stories in this way.  My wish is that, despite my work's very personal visual language and intentionally obfuscated scale of events, it latches into the minds of my viewers and mingles with their memories.
