“At Ease”
Sonoma, California
Painting
2020 - Present

These paintings are part of an ongoing series titled “At Ease,” capturing elderly individuals in a moment of ease.

I admire the elderly for their lack of awareness of being observed. My generation is intensely concerned with how we look at all times, and conscious of the frequent ability to be captured in a photograph. I have noticed the elderly have an effortlessness about how they move through the world.
I like paying attention to the people that we do not often take the time to consider, the people we don’t see in magazines, regular people going about their lives, people who don’t know they’re being seen. There is a brutal honesty about this existence that I seek to capture in my paintings.



“Portrait of the Artist as a Young Woman”
Sonoma, California
Painting & Documentary Film
2021


This painting was created as part of a larger film project produced in the Documentary Film MFA Program at Stanford University. I was the subject of a documentary film about processes, where my painting process was documented on a Bolex 16mm black and white film camera.


I painted the portrait of a live model with only five minutes of footage. The painting was produced in four consecutive hours.
