In the spirit of adventure, I make spontaneous marks with lots of color and texture to build layers, always on the lookout for a line or shape that emerges to evoke a memory. Often, I feel like an archeologist creating order out of controlled chaos.

Though it is a personal journey for me, my hope is that a strong composition and nuanced surface will engage the viewer on a more universal level.
