​​​​​​​​​​​​​ARTIST STATEMENT
My paintings are designs done in acrylic on canvas. They’re all about motion, vibration and color, inspired by nature, science, math, and cultures around the world. Byzantine tile, native beadwork, the symmetrical patterns of mandalas, and fractals are examples, but it’s Australian Aboriginal Art that most influences my work. I took a trip to Australia in 1997 and have been painting dots ever since.
