As a painter with a background in printmaking I am drawn to using repetitive elements and shapes in my work. I am also drawn to achieving depth through the use of flat pattern and texture. The underlying theme of my work, whether figurative, abstract, or still life is to explore the relationship people have with their environment, both natural and manmade. We have a profound impact on each other and the natural world whether we realize it or not. The impact we have is often positive, but unfortunately, even more often it is negative. Our position is unique. We are solely responsible for the problems we have created and we are solely responsible for the solution.
