Drawing and Painting

I am interested in the undistinguished visual experiences that we
habitually take for granted and ignore daily. I treat these visual
experiences as transformed icons in my paintings. These images walk
the line between being comfortable and familiar, and being uneasy and
irrational causing the viewer to have a "moment of discovery" similar
to what I have when I come across the original object or scene in our
daily landscape.
