Artist Statement

In my work I set out to accomplish order through proportion and scale. I depend on the line I draw to communicate form, function, proportion, and space. I like simplicity and believe in restraint. I build my work on a firm foundation where I begin to slowly abstract and leave only shapes that I find most necessary to express size, form, texture, color and meaning.

Distillation of a perceptual subject to its abstract elements contributes to the overall composition. Through this process I am eliminating the presence of the artist, leaving only the idea and the concept to be experienced by the observer without other distractions. The interaction of negative and positive space motivates me.
