ARTIST STATEMENT:
"I want people who look at my abstract artworks to experience resonance with Nature's relationships, fields and patterns. Sequence, structure and spin, metaphors for Nature's rhythms of creation and destruction, are my emphasis. My painting practice is about tuning the material to the idea. My new paintings on plexiglass question physical and psychological space: above/below, between and through; questions about boundaries, transparency, suspension and reflection. "
