At one of my exhibitions, I overheard a spectator call my paintings wonky. It was hurtful, but it helped me understand why I’ve been drawn to painting lonely, imperfect storefronts and facades. As someone with facial differences, I am always thinking about how I face the world. As an artist, I like to represent my own conflicted feelings while celebrating the beauty found in humble family businesses.
