My paintings act as a recording of continuous changing surroundings, which parallels lived experiences and activities in the studio. Personal photographs, drawings, notes and memories from my 26 years spent in Eastern Europe and my life as a new resident in Canada are the primary elements of my work. My painting practice is a process triggered by recollection, place and space, detachment, translation, dualities, time, risk and shift , physicality, fragmentation, mess, challenge and intrigue. The ongoing painterly ritual focuses on how to transform these elements into actual materials within the painting as a growing structure.
