Artist Statement

My drawing and painting are an exploration of the matter and energy that make up form; defining that energy, through shapes and patterns and the space that they inhabit is the basis for my work. I feel a bit like a Physicist, occupying an obscure corner of science. My hope is that I can create a sense of clarity in the chaos of the universe to give shape and purpose to what the eye does not see.

I am also intrigued by the idea that romance and beauty can blossom from duality; opposing concepts such as poetry and math are utterly interconnected. My use of color and shapes are both loud, yet restrained, just as my experiences as a global nomad are at once both wild and measured.

Contrary to what one might imagine, emptiness is full, everything seems to spring from nothing.
I remain obstinate in the belief that if I just dig deep enough, nothingness might reveal the secrets of the life force itself.
