    My current body of work is a meditation on the pause at the end of the breath. Exploring the idea of isolated transitional spaces and how they hold the essence of experience, I create moments with paint to express this in-between. I draw inspiration from both, vast wilderness that is awe-inspiring yet soul crushing and takes your breath away, thus lengthening that pause; and from the often missed and thought mundane everyday moments like the turn of the breath from inhale to exhale. These simple yet magical moments hold the wonder of possibility; they are the threshold, the world in slow motion for that split second before it all begins.

    I look at these happenings from a phenomenological perspective highlighting the essence, the experience and the strange and paradoxical nature of the ways things overlap and intersect. I am currently exploring this through oil on board, utilizing saturated color, glazing layers and subtle shifts to create an emotive experience through paint.
