This area of my work is concerned with the relationship between art and science. It focuses on my own particular fascination with outer space. My oil paintings are a way for me to share my learning process with others. I am also interested in ideas about trusting what we see and know. I interpret photographs taken by Hubble and combine them with my ideas and research about space. I purposely leave behind evidence of the paint rather than creating an illusionistic surface. This indicates that my works are not actual representations but conversations.
