About the Artist
“The less there is to look at the more important it is that we look at it closely and carefully.” –Kirk Varnedoe
Inspired by the atmosphere. Simple and complex: I am fascinated with space: actual, personal, psychological. I obscure boundaries between binaries; natural/man-made line and form, interior/exterior environments, to symbolize our continuous transformation as we navigate through our ever-changing surroundings. My paintings and drawings have become meditative; spaces in which to reflect on the simultaneous simplicity and complexity of this flow of being.
