Artist Statement

Drawing is an underlying element of my work. It helps me to locate something, by slowing things down and allowing me time to move through various landscapes and references. I am interested in pattern and geometry drawn from both natural sources and the manmade, as in commercial packaging and found ephemera. I work through this terrain, and invent new possibilities with drawn planes, grounding my work around the grid. In my work there is an geometry with a built in wobble--a structure with an underlying undoing-a precision with an irregularity. There is tension in places where planes transition, collide, and overlap, and where muted colors meet bright colors, discordant, forming a harmonic, balanced tension. My work is paradoxical: flat, yet dimensional, and bold with an inner quiet.
