I've made a decision to make work based on my own journeys during this second phase of adulthood. I'm purposefully (and fortunately) traveling and documenting interesting textures found in both the natural and man-made environments that I encounter. Recent journeys included excursions to Muirwoods in California, Devil's Den State Park in Arkansas, a month long sojourn to New Mexico and an mesmerizing trip to Japan; each providing a treasure-trove of visual information from which to create art.

Created through photography, digital processes, image transfer, and painted with deliberate stitch-like marks, pregnant with medium and light touches of pigment, my paintings prompt a dialogue between cellular abstraction when observed at close proximity and realism as you step back and detect the image’s origin from elements found in nature.
