I make colorful abstract work that leverages pattern and texture contrasts to create song-like themes and compositions. Such an indulgent approach requires restraint, meticulous technique, and specificity to keep things from getting out of hand. I am focused on accessibility, enjoyment, and images that reward the viewer with a rich internal experience.
