My background in art history, painting, printmaking, design, typography, and color theory, greatly influence the conceptual and compositional characteristics in my work. Reoccurring symbols both recognizable and cryptic are evident in my work. The images in my mind come to life revealing provocative worlds locked away, waiting to be explored. Conceptually, I am inspired by nature, mosaic tiles, textures, patterns, free forms, organic lines, symbols of hope, Art Brut, and my dreams. Experimental in material and process, my work is informed by the history of abstraction, outsider/intuitive artists, color, and architectural building material. I work in a manner that encourages textures, shapes and symbols to take on new meaning.
