In my abstract work, I am interested in how geometric and organic shapes exist on a continuum and how they complement or oppose one another. This dialogue between unplanned gestural raw movement and a decisive line or geometric shape is a fascinating dance.

To enrich this tactile experience, both in my Abstract and Interactive, I explore crackle paste and a variety of textural elements. I incorporate various mediums such as wood, mix media and metal, and the use of words.

To me, this slow, tumultuous and magical process of realizing an image, this embrace with life and its mysteries always connects me to Henry Miller’s words….“To paint is to love again”.
