I am a process oriented artist exploring themes of memory and connection. Intrigued by the complexities of the mind and inspired by the richness of the visual world, I approach pictorial space as a fragmented and multilayered experience. 

I work in small groups, with each body of work exploring a particular time in my life. Currently I am making a series inspired by my time in Florida's Big Cypress National Preserve. For this body of work I am placing emphasis on the digital drawing processes as a means to explore the relationship of layers within the paintings. 

My work is a process of transformation. I interpret information gathered from a first hand account, code it with color, and rebuild it in a non-linear way. Each decision alters the direction of the work, allowing the painting to be in a constant state of flux until the abstraction is discovered. 

Using transparent and semitransparent color reveals the history of decisions that go into each work. This leads to a unique color density, unusual edges, and new patterns. It is through this process of layering that the subjective experience is given a sense of time and space. 

I deeply enjoy the problems inherent to the language of painting. How do you express a worldly experience in two dimensions? Time has to be involved. The world is always changing, so is my connection to it. My work explores this ever evolving relationship.
