I draw inspiration from patterns, quilts, music composition, the natural world, cloth swatches, and various symbolic systems, including sacred geometry.

Although most of my work falls into the nonrepresentational category, occasionally I want to make something recognizable, because I also enjoy drawing from life.

Each painting represents a meditation of slow labor, an inner sanctum, usually involving many repetitions with slight variations. My paintings have been selected for national juried exhibitions and private collections, as runner up for New American Paintings, and published in Studio Visit.
