My artworks begin with a desire to try something new and are driven by passionate, fervorous feelings inspired by nature, current events, animals and the complexity of the universe. I do not believe in starting at the end, and so I oppose starting a painting with the end-image in mind. Instead, I start with a question. For example, "how will these two paints of different density interact depending on how I overlay them?" Similarly, I explore pigment dispersion in various media, the freezing and thawing of paints, magnetic and centrifugal interactions, and much more. As the experiment unfolds on the canvas, I am provided with a starting frequency which I can then embellish with more general overtones as well as more detailed oscillations to connect my thoughts into the artwork and channel my own energy. In this way, Nature and I create the artwork hand in hand.
