Nature is the primary inspiration for my artwork. There are existing patterns in nature that seem to reflect the patterns one has in relationships with others. I focus on the element of color, and use it both deliberately and randomly in my paintings. I am also interested in the complicated interactions humans have with nature. I like using found objects, both natural and human-made, in my art. The interplay of the random colors and the deliberate, personal meanings of the shapes and text create a certain, subtle tension within the compositions. I am also exploring line and the overlapping of lines and shapes that create new images within one another. The overlapping lines further abstract the images and shapes, creating layers and multiple meanings for viewers.
