My work is my autobiography. My work plays and questions abstraction and permanence. The pieces reflect my education in Bauhaus architecture, my explorations of line and content, and my reaction to life in locations discovered through my continued quest for knowledge.

Studying architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, created the basis for the paintings and drawings. Architecture and structure form the logic behind the way a painting is built and a drawing is constructed. How do the tools used affect the making of a line or series of lines? Each work is an answer to a question exploring how marks and gestures can be created to form a complete composition. Abstraction is not a style, but a state of mind…a balance of subtlety and boldness, confidence and risk, the known and that what needs to be found.
