My paintings are inspired by a lifelong passion for color and form. Many of my works are expressed in simple geometric shapes and vibrant colors. My compositions often eliminate extraneous information, drawing attention to the core essence and the primal emotion that is hidden under the surface. I ﬁnd myself constantly observing my surroundings – the people and the spaces they inhabit – looking for what draws the eye, and I have a visceral longing to express my discoveries through shape and color. Art is my prism – making strange and sublime distortions – through which I re-create and re-envision the world.
Linkage shows that each element is unique in its appearance, standing independently, yet all are touching at a single point, to connect with one another.
Interlock shows that each independent element touches one another as the elements are independent yet dependent.
