I paint about the energy that connects us, and the rhythm and vibrations between our cells and the cells of everything around us. I am inspired by mindfulness, seeing music, neural networks, biomimicry, synchronicities, and the mathematical patterns in the natural world. The paintings celebrate the synergy of disparate elements in a system, seeking harmony amidst chaos, and highlight the interconnectedness of micro and macro, density and spaciousness, physical and immaterial. I hope to make paintings that seem alive — at one glance still, at another moving — with forms coming together and breaking apart at the same time. I am interested in the stages of transformation from one state of being into another. In this vein, I consider my paintings less as images and more as portals that encourage a transcendent experience. I intend to create a sacred space on canvas that encourages a deep sense of presence in the viewer.
