I believe that abstract painting is like poetry, a form of visual language that speaks to the viewer’s emotions and imagination. I explore the abstract form by considering the fundamentals of design, such as hard-soft, encompass and enclose, discontinuity, focus point, direction, repeat, covering, movement, blocking, overlap, association, weaving, flowing and rhythm, to create meaning and expression.

My work is inspired by the awe I feel for exquisite patterns and rhythms juxtaposed with a randomness that only nature can create. I strive to capture these elements and use them as a starting point, expressing aesthetics beyond the subject matter that inspired me in the first instance.
