My artwork explores optical expressions of evocative experiences with form and color, where what appears is shaped by what disappears. This is a seeming paradox of evolution, and animates my fascination with proliferating optical patterns, layers, lines and colors that alternate between construction and dissolution. With painting, I seek to capture moments that echo through time, and can be sensed through seeing.

Fifty percent of all sales of my artwork, for the foreseeable future, will be donated to Earth Justice. I am moved and inspired by the presence and commitment of the First Nation Peoples, who give voice to their cultural ancestry, to the preservation of essential and life-sustaining natural resources for future generations of people and creatures living on the earth, and to the voice of the earth, itself.
