I’m a painter and a mixed media artist.

My pieces are inspired by a sense of reverence for the beauty of life, with its decay and erosion, and then the emergence of, or rebirth of what grows from that.   

They reflect my fascination with nature’s ever-changing pantheon of shapes, patterns, surface qualities and colors that go along with the cycles of life and the ideology associated with the destiny of change and transformation. 

With this in mind, they may also contain the concept of one’s renewed growth, after allowing the collapse of old structures and outgrown values.
