Artist's Statement

Imagination, curiosity, and time are the ingredients of my paintings. In patterns and shapes I see the hidden meanings underneath the pleasurable rhythm and color. Shapes evolve, develop, and multiply to become patterns. Meanings emerge as a pattern proliferates, conjugates and transforms.

I am particularly interested in picturing the intangible, of experiences that have no real shape or form, such as remembering, travel and listening to music. I use knot patterns for the apparent metaphor of growth and connectedness, when threads become weaving and knots. The movement of patterns, with shapes moving around or across the picture, evokes the sense of time that such experiences occur.
