Artist StatementI believe that art can simply be a pure exercise in pattern and color. I concentrate on assembling pleasing color palates and striking patterns in order to produce something visually stimulating. I like the practice of mark making, the effect of mixing textures and media, and the translucence of layering. My pieces have a harmonious patterned aesthetic that incorporates a wide swath of materials, surfaces, and techniques. The finished pieces must be viewed numerous times before all of the individual elements can be isolated by the viewer.
I am a graduate of Towson University, where I majored in Fine Arts with a concentration in Painting. I live and work in Montgomery County, Maryland in a home studio.
