artist’s statement

While working on my MFA at the University of Illinois, I became interested in the work and ideas of C.G. Jung, especially his concept of the collective unconscious and his interest in dreams. Dreams defy physics and amplify experience with their ambiguous spaces, symbolic meanings, and sensations that seem to speak from and to a sixth sense. In this way, painting and dreaming have much in common, both in process and result.
Painting allows my subconscious perceptions to register graphically, similar to the way they do in dreams. I have come to see painting as a developing solution to the unconscious.
