The structures, patterns and textures of my natural and man-made environment and the order that is found in it’s apparent chaos, these are my concerns as a painter.

I build patterns of stripes and chevrons with seductive surfaces and rich colors. In some of my paintings, a new structure with it’s own contrasting rhythm appears to float just above the picture plane, mediating the patterns embedded below.

The inspiration for my work sometimes happens when I experience an aerial view of Earth, with its visible layered systems of its use, by natural process and the workings of mankind.
