In my paintings and drawings, I investigate the nuances of nature, human and otherwise. By "fracturing" the surface of shapes and ideas about shapes, the simple becomes complex, the complex becomes understandable. To achieve this, I use the drawn or painted line and compartments of color on various surfaces. The resulting images are an intense focus on an intimate optical experience. It is a visual excursion beneath, between, among and around the surface of all living forms, human and otherwise. The work is a journey that appreciates the glory of all creation.
