The works in “between Place and Thought” explore the spaces between: between place and thought, between space and time, between the external world around us and the internal worlds within.

My paintings use the imagery of cartography to create a network of thoughts about the environment, the expanse of geologic time, and the vastness of the cosmos and the world.

Creating maps, as opposed to representational cityscapes or landscapes, gives me the freedom to depict more than what can be seen. A dotted line can be the trace of passing time, the movement of the stars, or the lines and dashes in the middle of the road, depending on the label I put next to them.

I try to see the sacred in the mundane, to be present and full of awareness about the external world I live in and my internal world that remembers and forgets.
