"Memories and Recollections"


I have become fascinated with the past—in particular, with stories of long-gone relatives. Through copying and recopying, I transform vintage family photos and then digitally print them onto canvas. In this enlarged image, I can re-imagine the life of my ancestor and mentally converse with them-- remembering stories of their hopes and daily lives.  The painting becomes a visual translation of both memory and imagination, picturing past locales and people in a nostalgic soft focus.


By visually experiencing my history, I make sense of my present day life through these ancestral “souvenirs from the past.”
