I am intrigued by the phenomenon of vanishing cultures, ancient architecture, marks of graffiti, light and space. I create pattern, linear designs, shapes and forms into my own visual language, which is intuitively based. I use what I refer to as “visual symbols”, sometimes literal, yet mystical. I often write on the surfaces of my work and, by layering the paint, I can disguise any imagery altogether. I make surfaces that resemble weathered walls, frescos, cracked plaster or cement, and the reaction of time on paint. I view my work with a continual sense of discovery and enjoy the complexities of interpreting that sense.
