That is beautiful which is produced by the inner need, which springs from the soul. (Wassily Kandinsky)

Dealing with themes about transition, journey, and spirituality I see my work as a continuous flow of images, shapes, marks, and patterns built from years of creating a visual vocabulary. This vocabulary is tied to nature, which is also a continuous visual flow of images, shapes, marks, and patterns. All the forces and particles of nature are one, just different ripples in the ocean of consciousness. I find that the more tangential the imagery, the more it becomes metaphorical and open to the viewer’s own interpretation. My desire is that the viewer’s interpretation of my artwork relates on a level that connects the viewer to nature and to a spiritual sensibility that is innate.
