My work involves the analysis of images and patterns contained within biological systems. The symbiosis between microscopic organisms and their host--as a function of both synergy and infection--is the underlying notion that fuels the ideas in my paintings. Lately I have been motivated by layering and the use of line as a tool for creating systematic rhizomorphic structures. Thus, I continue to explore the growth, energy, interdependence, and mortality of invented organic forms.

Essential to my process of painting are risk and fluidity. Utilizing the bleeding and fusion of colors, while controlling their flow and growth, I achieve a combination of carefully rendered forms and gestural movement, creating a gracefully unpredictable web of paint. The resulting images are networks and colonies that evoke macroscopic tissues with microbiological nuance.
