mixed-media, paper


I refer to my paintings as “glam minimalism,” as the glitter finish and the popping colors can hardly be considered minimal.

My work utilizes principles from the schools of hard-edge painting and Light and Space, using components of Op-Art and color theory with the compositional elements based on abstracted architecture.

I strive for three main visual effects in my pieces that do require some energy from the viewer if she/he choses to engage: using color to attain a color vibration that takes not more than a glance; an afterimage that requires the viewer to take a moment to stand and stare into the color field before glancing away at a white wall; and a light and color-shift, which requires the viewer to physically move around a piece.

My work in the studio is rigorous and exacting, but once on the walls, I want the viewer to not only engage but feel the joy of discovery over and over.
