I am interested in creating spaces where natural and digital worlds overlap. Within each painting the forms, as well as the negative space, become structures with patterns to be explored and questioned. The building up of mark and color within a painting and the removal of paint as I go along, relates both to the formal construction of my paintings as well as the ways in which we as individuals address our connections to each other and ourselves. The result is an image that lies somewhere between reality and fantasy, digital and natural, and confusion and clarity.
