I make art that gives viewers an experience for looking.
Having a strong interest in materiality and a personal connection to the natural world, my work is inspired by elements that show the passage of time and a record of aging. Informed by the macro and micro world, I focus on explorations of color, texture and substance manipulation that yield unusual and seductive visual results. My attention to surface and detailed foundation layers places an emphasis on the appearance of work as I strive to attract the viewer in for closer observation. I work intuitively and describe my approach to art-making as a process of excavation. There is no map or definitive end and no preconceived plan of travel, only a sense that something waits to be revealed.
