I paint condensed, heightened moments from everyday life. They are moments of contemplation on encounters with the world. The external world becomes a mirror for inner reflections. Aware of impermanence and the passage of time, my paintings pay homage to the beauty and wonder of everyday things and mundane, timeless happenings. They nod at the cyclical nature of life.
