Memories drive my creative practice. Each of my works refer to particular experiences and poignant moments that live on in a psychological space far longer than they may physically exist. This work specifically relates to the loving comfort of a relationship. The textural application of soft, creamy paint refers to the softness of skin, touch, and intimacy. These two organic forms support each other, which suggests one cannot exist without the other.
