Inspired by nature, I weave together my work with lyricism and abstraction. Color and actions describing natural phenomenon are put down as just paint and somehow something magical happens among the mark making and layering. As I embrace the unexpected — lines, x forms, curves and triangles found in the environment coalesce as a life force in my work. 


Close ups of botanical specimens as well as expansive landscape engage me, including subject matter as diverse as Himalayan prayer flags and Connecticut gardens. Playing with viscosity, flat areas contrasting shiny, vibrant color singing against adjacent hues, textures and meandering lines, I uncover patterns and detail, transforming it into something else.
