I draw and paint on a tiny scale and am inspired by the detail, whimsy and geometric naturalism of both early Netherlandish and Indian Miniature painting. I use a variety of media as point of departure, ranging from personal photography to elements of film. Loosely narrative, my pieces reveal quiet, solitary moments as a sense of time or place is trapped and brought to stand still. Concerned with identity, memory and psychological phenomenon, my recent work symbolically explores these fixations. While combing this awareness of being, time and of place, my works reflect everyday life, daydreams, and, finally, the fragility and the boundlessness of both humanity and the natural world alike.
