I am interested in communicating my visual and perceptual experiences. Place, time and my visual encounters inform my work - cloud movements, sunrises, sunsets, and other natural phenomena, architecture and design. Through the use of color, light, memory, and perception I attempt to convey these experiences.
In my most recent work, I've been forcusing on color - how we see color.
