"Making art has been a continuous thread throughout my life. Punctuated by the joy and reverence I have for nature and a relentless curiosity about the world around me, my work combines painting, drawing and installation. Many of my ideas stem from research into space and time and all forms appearing in the natural world. I am especially drawn to transparent-like elements and have been primarily using fabrics and other commercial plastic materials to create my works. Color plays an integral role in enhancing the atmospheric transparency of the materials. My hope is that the work, sharing forms of painting, sculpture and installation gives the viewer an intimate look at seemingly ordinary materials that connects with them in some way. "
