Artists Statement


My paintings investigate the ubiquitous patterns of light, shadow and reflection that we all experience daily, but that we rarely stop to notice. The works reflect a perceptual duality: a tangible, distinct moment and place when the source pattern is found, intertwined with the fleeting and ephemeral nature of time. As light and atmospheric conditions shift, my source patterns morph, move and change.

I am challenged to capture this relationship between the perceived and the barely sensed: the concrete world influenced by the inevitable transformation of time and spirit.
