"I experience a paradoxical attraction for both rural and urbanscapes. I am stirred by the sharp, significant lines that construct both places. My quest is to find balance in the void of the solitude in nature and the visual complexity of the modern city.
By using a hard-edge painting technique, my abstract landscapes depict wonder and possibility, along with movement, mood, memory, and time.
I snap photos while traveling in a vehicle through the sprawl and pause to adore the daily and seasonal changes in my immediate environment. I use these pictures as initial sources for composition and insight in my work. I deconstruct the image by instinctively selecting acrylic paint colors and lines to form a specific rhythm and light for each painting. The composition is layered and distorted to create contrast and the notion of seasons, weather conditions, and time."
