Artist's Statement
My work is about memory, and my awareness of the repetition of large and small events in my life. In my paintings, drawings, and mixed media I create rhythmic patterns by repeating images and colors to imply a sense of recurrence. Repetition implies memory in the sense that an object seen for a second, third or fourth time is an echo of the thought of the first time it was seen. I see these multiple images as symbolic self-portraits which prompt memories of recurring events, such as waking up each morning or making the same mistake again or running into an old friend. I use repetition as a way of outwardly expressing a deja vu type feeling of having experienced a situation before. By repeating familiar imagery in my work, such as a paper doll shape, I evoke recognition of a universal commonality of memories and experiences.
