The layering of a wide vocabulary of marks within veils of color creates rich images, full of persistent sensations. Color, pattern and repetition are core issues in the making of my work, and I almost always begin with some form of grid. Most often, and with long periods of concentrated focus, the work evolves to a point where it teeters between balance and distortion. The nature and inexactness of this loosely applied geometry is very specific to me and is evidenced in all of my work.
Through all of my studio processes, I allow the accumulation of thought with its emotional qualities and its logic to be expressed. Pleasure in the visual is made clear in my work, and I trust it invites repeated viewing.
