My work is built out of multiple layers of collage elements with acrylic polymer paint, drawn lines and various mixed mediums.

I am obsessed with the mystery of the creative process which allows me to discover places that feel both familiar and unknown.

My interest is in the pure pleasure of form, line, and color. My work is a continual evolutionary journey of discovery. I never tire of the process of building multiple layers on a surface. I keep searching until the piece leads me to its own conclusion. I strive to let the paintings tell me their own story, always on the lookout for a spark of wonder within the work.
