My work centers around my own personal relationship to the power of the story, fable or myth; a relationship that includes nostalgia and some unidentified ingredients. I depict scenes or moments from larger stories that haven't yet been told. I struggle to vividly imagine the parts of a whole, a whole that I can't understand. I never fully know the larger story. Perhaps complete stories are either endangered or extinct.
