The act of reading in the digital age has changed our relationship to the traditional printed page. My artwork takes its inspiration from the enduring structures and materials of that historical craft, while my subject matter is decontextualized language void of meaning and mass produced cliches that evoke personal memories. The resulting images comprise the unique pages of my particular narrative.

And sometimes I just paint lemons.
