“I breathed through your body,” 2012, 36" x 36,” Oil on Canvas, Image Courtesy of LA Louver.

This painting is from a suite ode to my infant twin daughters. Josephine was taken and Andromeda was saved. I found inspiration and solace in the tradition of the allegorical still life. It allowed me to meditate on loss and celebrate survival through the power and simplicity of observational painting.
