“As an artist, I am interested in the beauty and complexity of the natural world, especially its structures, patterns and cycles. Through gestural marks and organic forms, I make reference to the landscape around us, and also the emotional landscape within. Dots and lines are among the most basic visual marks, and I see them as metaphors for the elemental particles that make up everything, always in motion and evolving. I want to put the emphasis on verbs more than nouns, creating a sense of energy and movement, yet also maintaining a sense of balance within the work.”
