As an artist, I am most moved by my struggle to understand where I fit into this ever expanding universe. I continuously search for the visual patterns that repeat throughout every detail of the natural world. In witnessing the effortless motion as a swarm of bees or a school of fish reacts as a single organism, I am able to catch a glimpse of those patterns. My painting process allows me to access those same profound feelings of connection and understanding. It is a place where colors evolve and pigments flow like sediment in a river of capillary motion. I fill my canvases with pure colors and elegant symmetries while juxtaposing the simple and complex systems that connect all forms of life on our planet.
