Since childhood, I’ve been fascinated by patterns and shapes. There’s something mystical about the natural relationship and juxtaposition of quite diverse and seemingly random elements that appeals to me. The infinite variety of color, texture, contour, and spatial organization of the natural world inform my aesthetics. I am also acutely aware of the same random pattern of my own existence – attachment, separation, longing, loss, adjustment and compromise. In my work I simply attempt to understand and relate to this profound dichotomy, harmony and balance.
