Artist Statement

My paintings are like visual poems. I get inspiration and information from structures and patterns found in nature. I like to combine people-made objects and structures with objects that are found in the natural world.

Drawing plays a big role in my creative process. Even though my work is primarily abstract, I often include motifs and visual clues from my surroundings that help to inform the viewer of what the painting is about.

I often start a piece with something in mind. As the painting evolves my thinking evolves along with it and eventually the painting takes on its own reality that is parallel to the physical world. Ultimately, I am internalizing the visual and material world and arriving at more ambiguous, poetic and metaphorical reality.
