Artist's Statement

A couple of years ago I began collecting old photographs from thrift stores. When I began painting these 'lost memories' I found that people were reacting in a very nostalgic way. Every comment was 'this figure looks like' or 'they remind me of ...' I have decided to move forward with this idea and begin working on "Nostalgia Now". This will be a series of paintings from old photographs intentionally using nostalgic colors, loose forms, and figures that might be relate-able to the viewer. I want to find a common history with strangers’ experience.
