I am interested in the beauty and complexity of the natural world, especially its structures, patterns and cycles. Through gestural marks and organic forms, I make reference to the landscape around us, and also the emotional landscape within. Dots and lines are among the most basic visual marks, and I use them as metaphors for the underlying particles that make up everything. In each painting I am searching for a balance of energy, movement and yet also serenity. I am intrigued by the transformation of an artwork during its creation. Some parts get pushed back and covered over, while others are pulled forward, and when a painting is finally complete, it contains a rich history.
