The subject matter for my works arrive from memorable fleeting moments. When you move the brush a line is created. It both connects and separates. A truck moves forward and a message is passed along. The queen-artist character with her enormous side buns is standing on the side of the truck and another one in the middle of a stage in an opera house.

My works are paintings with oils or alkyds on canvas. I work in an incomplete world, in intersections of figurative and abstract. As a child I was nearly hit by a truck but my mother managed to save me at the last moment. – I survived and now as an adult I think this is the particular reason I paint.
