"As I paint, whether it be object, spatial, or abstract painting, each subject becomes less documentary and more about my fascination with the subtleties of color and light. I paint using multiple layers of transparent and semi-transparent glazes, which allow me to manipulate the subject matter, enhancing some aspects and making other recede."
