As an abstract painter, I interpret what I see with my own language, developing new words as I expand my alphabet. The origins of my forms are organic in nature, of nature. I enjoy portraying the patterns of plants and exploring the rhythm of a landscape. The shapes are allowed to flow and intermingle, creating a tangible environment enticing the viewer to travel throughout the piece. I have chosen to work in vivid colors because they echo the energy of nature and best represent those elements which intrigue me most.
