I have long found inspiration and beauty in the nooks and crannies of ordinary life, painting the untold stories of unknown people I’ve encountered throughout the years. From fleeting observations on the F train to patients in a locked psychiatric unit where I was a mental health counselor. What interests me is how memory plays such an important role in these encounters. How easily memories of influential people so easily fade. We are shaped and influenced by the people who surround us from day one, an old friend, a grade school teacher, even a singular conversation with a stranger can be powerful, but human nature dictates that even the most influential people fade from memory through time. I paint with oil bars on found wood panels using my fingers to work the paint into the textured wood.
