While I work in a variety of media, and create pieces both representational and abstract, there are some constant questions and themes that inspire me. I am interested in images and forms that describe a process of evolving, and transformation.
My paintings look outside, to forces in the natural world that are catalysts of change or cause a transformation in the landscape: tornadoes, geysers, volcanoes, or less volatile movements found in the ever-changing patterns of earth and sky. These cycles of change and renewal can evoke both solace and awe.
My sculpture and installation looks inside, to evolving organic forms; entities that are not yet fully developed, and as such are slightly ambiguous, mysterious, yet full of potential, in a state of becoming.
