My recent work draws on the high desert of California in Joshua Tree. I am interested in telling stories in oil painting, though, sometimes I use thick manila pattern paper and colorful pieces of bolt fabric as if they were part of a puzzle I am forever attempting to solve. I have arrived here through an organic process - a background in the garment manufacturing industry. Now I’ve come to use the materials of the trade as a kind of redemption.
