About

My abstract paintings are inspired by forms and motions found in nature. For my work I use “paint-pouring” techniques that are difficult to control and result in unpredictable patterns, reflecting both the chaos and the order that are inherent in the structure of the universe on a macro and micro level.

I pour, blow, smear, and tilt fluid paint to create the variety of effects seen in my paintings. Although I can guide the direction of the composition as a whole, much of the end result is up to the whims of the paint.

My paintings include many small, intricate patterns born naturally out of the interaction of ingredients in the paints as they mix on the canvas. They encourage the viewer to see the beauty of the composition as a whole, but also to take time to look closer at the multitude of small details within them, much like one might be drawn to the pattern of veins on a single leaf in a forest.

Though thoroughly abstract, my work brings to mind natural sights such as the horizon, clouds, ocean waves, river deltas, flames, and sunsets, as well as smaller subjects such as spiderwebs, veins, plant cells, neurons, and sea foam.

My primary goal is to create beautiful things. My process emulates the processes that form beauty in the natural world: order out of random chance. I encourage the viewer to take joy in the small parts of a whole, and to appreciate even those things that are out of our control.
