My work is contemplative. 

The natural world has always played an important role in my work; my imagery plays with the intersection of reality and the abstract.

 Years ago I began to search for the origin of my own creativity. Within that search, I found myself hypersensitive to patterns and overlaps in imagery and thought. I began to twist the idea of reality as it related to painting and the physicality of the medium into my interpretation of life.

My challenge today is to work within the intersections of these disparate themes, reality and the abstract; breaking down the figure, the landscape, and natural elements into my own personal narrative of patterns and shapes.
