Memory is selective and never replicates the actual event, but the reminiscence is still present and embraced. The subjects of my work, Catalyst, are everyday buildings and structures: the physical memories of the cities in which they are located. My paintings capture buildings, no longer pristine or functioning, but remaining present and part of the urban landscape through our recollection.

My medium, oil paint, allows for layering that assists in conveying the effects of time on the subjects.   Likewise, I seek to provide an outlet for viewers to draw upon their own layered memories through their dialogue with the paintings. Rather than needing the audience to have connections to the specific locations, the narrative created by the paintings recalls similar neighborhoods from town to town.
