My paintings are large scale, hyperrealistic renditions of microscopic sections of human skin, which serve as an investigation of emotional and psychological landscapes translated through the visual analysis of flesh. 

Through ‘close ups’  of skin, I explore the endless fluctuations and subtle intonations of color and temperature found within flesh that are in many ways reflective of the breadth and fragility of human emotion. 

I am particularly interested in how the magnification of flesh can induce an alternating sense of claustrophobia and desire. Largeness of scale plays a key part in generating a sense of being surrounded by the overbearing presence of another human form.
