Inspired by natural phenomenon, I reference biological, geological and cartographic influences in my work. My paintings evoke the interior of a mineral formation, a view of an undiscovered world, or the genesis of a new life form.

While abstract, my works mimic the processes and transformations observed in nature. Layering and blending acrylic paints of varying viscosities, opacities, and colors, I depict the essence of boundaries, movement and energy.

My most recent work explores the concepts of reinvention and the development of self hood. I integrate reflective 2-D media with paint on canvas as well as constructing sculptures from paint which escaped the boundaries of the canvas.

All of my artwork contains one common link: the desire to convey my fascination with nature’s inimitable aesthetic.
