Artist's Statement

I work primarily in fresco and encaustic mediums, sometimes combining multiple techniques in creating my abstract and often minimal paintings. The focus of my work is to fragment the space in myriad ways with texture and line as the primary tools along with simple elements of pattern, shape and color. I am interested in the interplay between what nature has created, and what man creates in organic environments thus randomness plays as important an element as control. My work is very process oriented. I am fascinated by surface and texture and led by things that appear in the process. I am not afraid to push the boundaries of the mediums and am excited by the potential conflicts that arise.
