STATEMENT

I'm a contemporary abstract artist working in a variety of materials, including photographs, found natural and human made objects, paper, paint, ink, graphite, etc. I follow a spontaneous exploration with my materials as I'm curious to see what relationships are formed through this process. I'm interested in surprises, accidents, mistakes, and imperfections, as these are the places where in life we learn what we most need to learn, and where our experience is at its richest. When we can learn to 'let go' into these places, they are where beauty and joy truly exist.

My current work "Permission" is a series of mixed media collages on paper formed by creating large scale expressive paintings which are deconstructed - cut and torn, painted again, cut again, simplified, reduced, etc. until they are a 'whole of parts and parts of a whole' --layers of meaning in a well explored life.
