ARTIST STATEMENT

My Favorite Strangers

I paint portraits because I love people. I think it’s great that people bond over shared experiences with absolutely nothing to gain, that any given stranger will throw me a bemused smile from across the room if we both witness a child yell GREEN BEAAAAAANS loudly in a nice restaurant. I love the fleeting moments of solidarity that pop out when you least expect them, over a mutual dislike of a professor or a bad impression of a Love Island contestant. These fleeting friendships light up my life, little bursting reminders of togetherness.
