These paintings stem from moments that occur in my everyday life. After taking a year off from painting when my son was born, I found that when I returned to my studio my world felt very different and my concerns had vastly changed. I was deeply affected by our interactions, watching the development of his personality and the adjustment to my new reality. By interpreting these experiences in my work, I was able to explore their meaning and understand their value. My process also changed at this time, becoming much more fluid – echoing the fluidity of my continuously changing life. I found new meaning in color, composition, and movement.
