Artist Statement

In art and life, I am colorful. My paintings, like my personality are bold and direct. I create structured yet playful geometric compositions in a palette of saturated, vibrant hues. Scanners, digital projection and vector graphics play a significant role in the production of my imagery. Though I consider digital products complete in their own right, my challenge is to transform them into tactile, hand-hewn objects with a finite scale. Much like an architect or quilter the act of piecing together lines, patterns and planes is central to my process. The forms and content in my work represent an ongoing fascination with the fickleness of color and its chameleon-like ability to create illusions of transparency, opacity and three-dimensional space. Currently a member of Tacoma’s Jet Artist Co-op, I aspire to share my passion for pigment and public art as a leader, artist and art educator in the Pacific Northwest.
