Artist Statement

I’m an oil painter and emergency medicine physician. What surrounds me triggers my paint choices. This is often my hospital halls; people I work with; or patients I care for. Much back and forth between reality and imagination occurs. And often there are layers of paint and choices that I don’t plan for until working into it. Much like doctoring, there are unexpected turns and outcomes.

Over the last several years (in particular) art has been a refuge and a means to pick up and sort out the pieces. I have found digging into the intellectual and emotional content of a painting has resulted in a greater ability to do the same at the bedside. Art also provides a voice for me that I myself don’t always hear until I begin painting. I recently began experimenting with adding bits of physical world prompts into the paintings: shreds of journals, medical records, academic notes with the hopes of adding additional layers of interpretation and intent.
