I endeavor to find the connection between math and deliberation with nature and randomness. I employ an experimental approach inspired by urban and natural textures, using geometry, patterns, and contrived shapes to create a lyrical, non-narrative statement. My paintings are colorful, contemporary and abstract, often based on musical frequencies, graffiti, architecture and patterns.
