Statement

Noticing and creating beauty in the world is my artistic pursuit.  I am largely influenced by the patterns found in landscapes, sacred geometry, fluid dynamics, fractals, textiles, and ancient man-made art and architecture.  The repetition in these systematic forms is cyclical and infinite and conveys to me a sense of what is shared by mankind across time and culture—the desire to experience the divine, a quest to understand the world, and a longing to know beauty.

My most recent work explores our own DNA, which is the link to our ancestors of the past, each other in the present, and our progeny throughout the future.  My work also contemplates our place within the universe and what we choose to pass on to those who follow us and to learn from those who have preceded us.  Through these artworks, I share with viewers my appreciation of beauty and recognition of what is good in the human spirit—the desire to create something splendid and worthy in a world too often filled with wickedness and destruction.
