My work focuses on surface tension of reflective surfaces exploring diverse and abstract forms. The imagery is fluid, caught in the instant between space and time speaking to patterns and textures, earthly and alien, ancient and monolithic, contemporary and poetic.
I am drawn to that middle place, the space hovering ever so slightly above and below that very thin membrane, the in-between, known as the surface. Through constant flux in the subject matter, diverse and abstract forms emerge from shifting interactions where patterns, rhythm, texture and colors meet.
The images I create are my personal dialogue, my stream of consciousness, reflecting a calmness and splendor of that which I immerse myself in amidst the external chaos of my life. It is my voice, my transformative experience between the unknown, uncertainty and waiting. By sharing my work publically, I become part of something bigger than myself, guiding one into making a deeper personal connection with the imagery.
