Artist Statement
My work is heavily influenced by nature and the natural world, observed and inspired through pod-like formations, color, repetition, chaos and order, growth and decay. Within my paintings, I combine elements of representation and abstraction to show this inspiration, as beautifully as I can depict.

At times, the work takes a very ordered and gridded approach, as things understood as concrete; while at other times, repetitious forms and patterns start to emerge, creating unique, abstract, playful landscapes. These abstract landscapes serve as journeys and paths we discover in the process of living amidst this natural order. Through the use of repetition of object and form, I attempt to further understand and interpret this natural order, as objects moving throughout space and time, on a journey into a different state.
