Artist's Statement

My work parallels my life. Sometimes it begins with a plan and other times the process is untethered and full of chaos. Often my mathematics background influences my thinking. I embrace the unpredictable and work towards a resolution, a simple solution.

Applied in many layers, my work includes experimentation, questioning and game playing. I love to explore the unexpected as the painting develops and the relationship between shapes and gestural figures interact, sometimes avoiding, sometimes colliding and often intersecting one another. The outside edges of the painting form an ambiguous boundary for whatever is contained within, similar to boundaries we encounter or create in life.

For me, my work is play, a subtle puzzle to be completed, an ambiguous equation to be manipulated, a life of its own with each layer, mark or erasure.
